Maybe we could define a very light process where someone willing to add
a new crate for rust-vmm should first send an issue describing the crate
and the reason why it should be part of rust-vmm. If it makes sense for
the community to have this crate being part of rust-vmm, then a
completely empty repository is created and people can start sending
actual PRs against it.
I'm going to send a proposal for this, as a README addition to the
community repo.
