[libvirt] [libvirt-php] New project on libvirt.org and information about sending patches

based on our yesterday conversation mainly between Radek Hladik from cybersales.cz (who was the project's original maintainer), Justin Clift and me we've decided to move the project from github to libvirt.org to be GIT hosted there.

I recommend using this list for the patches to be reviewed there first. I don't know whether we have to establish ACK procedure there or not however posting the patches to this list may be good mainly for brief reviews and option to explicitly NACK the patch if somebody doesn't really like the patch (and have the good reason to don't like it, of course :) ).

The procedure for sending patches to libvirt-php (or php-libvirt, as the original name was - I guess both names are acceptable) is recommended to be following:

1. Sign up to libvirt list if you're not on it yet (libvir-list redhat com)

2. Clone the repository from libvirt.org site using:
    git clone git://libvirt.org/libvirt-php

3. Set your git username and e-mail and also set the subject prefix in the project's repository using:
    git config --local format.subjectprefix "libvirt-php"

4. Create the patch in the form of the commits and include also information about usage (example source codes maybe) and testing

5. Format it using `git format-patch -X` where X is the number of patch parts to be posted, for multipart patch (X > 1) please use also numbering (-n) option and include the cover-letter (--cover-letter).

6. Send to libvir-list redhat com using the `git send-email <files> --to libvir-list redhat com` command where <files> can be "000*" to send all the patches formatted by git format-patch since git format-patch names the files starting with the 4 digit numbers.
