For branching I presume, e.g. from the Emacs repo:

* a176f79  2011-01-22  Update configure
* cc62ed3  2011-01-22  configure.in: Don't zero-out FONTCONFIG_CFLAGS and 
FONTCONFIG_LIBS when building with XFT (doing so is incorrect, as Emacs 
directly uses fontconfig, and breaks building when using a strict linker).
* c1c7cc4  2011-01-21  Add pcomplete support for hosts defined in .ssh/config.
*   16ea2fd  2011-01-21  Merge: src/config.in: shrink slightly
| * 95d0549  2011-01-21  src/config.in: shrink slightly
* | 06f3ebc  2011-01-21  gnus-art.el (gnus-mime-display-single): Use 
mm-display-inline rather than mm-insert-inline.
* 95b29e3  2011-01-21  aclocal.m4: tweaks to regenerate more conveniently
* b2caa9a  2011-01-21  * gnus-art.el (gnus-button-alist, 
gnus-button-handle-info-keystrokes): Don't confuse the "ret" of "retrograde" 
with RET.
