[meego-packaging] Where to store packaging materials?

I've asked this before but as far as I remember the discussion sort of
wandered off to a tangent without any sort of resolution.
I am currently in charge of packaging two components of the meegotouch
framework for MeeGo (meegotouch-applauncherd and meegotouch-applifed).
There is not much packaging material, just the yaml and spec files and
some patches, but I would still like to store them in somewhere public.
Partly because I might one day get run over by a truck, and partly just
because. This is open source, so it would seem appropriate that the
packaging materials should be easily available. Currently if I want to
find out how some package in MeeGo has been packaged, the only way that
I know of is to get a source RPM and extract the spec file etc. from
there. And even those are not the original files, as *.changes has been
merged into *.spec.
Right now my packaging materials live in the git repositories of the
corresponding components. As pointed out in the previous discussion,
this is somewhat suboptimal, but I have yet to come up with a better place.
What I would really like to see is some repository where I could archive
my packaging materials. Where are the packaging materials for the MeeGo
packages currently archived, if at all?
