Splitting out user branches into separate repository gives:
* option of giving developers access to push to user branches but not master
* git clone of master repository does not pull down all users objects
* namespace of master repository is not "polluted" by user branches.
Working with a master and a user repository should work just as well
as the current setup in all other aspects than having to do an (extra)
"git remote add" command.
