My initial read of Doug's proposal was for a tarball of the project's schemas
to be published somewhere out-of-tree, e.g. to tarballs.openstack.org, via a
post-merge git hook or some-such.

Not 100% sure that's a correct interpretation of the proposal, but it would
avoid the need for the consumer projects to pull the repos of the emitter
