You can have branches also on git-wip-us.

The reason I'm bringing this up is that if you don't push your changes
to the git-wip-us repository yourself, the primary legal audit trail
of who contributed this piece of code will point to someone else (in
this case Bryce). You're essentially asking that someone to take
responsibility of the changes you made. Did you really intend these
changes to be contributed to Apache? Where's the record saying that
you did?

In normal circumstances this is hardly an issue, but if something goes
wrong (say for example you were experimenting with some patented Adobe
technology with no intention of open-sourcing it, and someone else
pushed those changes to Apache without realizing what you were doing)
then such blurring of legal responsibility can quickly become nasty.
