That would be redundant. I think you should push directly into the GSoC
repo, and if you don't have write permission that's a bug we need to
fix. (I don't have the admin rights to that repo to fix this myself. I
suspect David can help with that, though.)

The point that still needs elaboration is the relationship between the
new and the existing code. You mentioned some possible refactoring that
would make integration easier. Can you please outline what refactoring
you have in mind ? We can then discuss the right timeframe to work on
the refactoring PRs, and decide whether it's indeed best to work on your
tensor code as something mostly independent of the existing ublas
codebase or not.
As I mentioned, I'd still much favour the work being done in-tree rather
than out-of-tree, but I'm ready to be convinced that that's not a good idea.
