I think that could work fine; I'm happy to do my best to maintain it,
although I might lag a little some times.

You'll note I already maintain "maintenance/VERSION" branches for the
official patch sets.  I wonder if Chet's preliminary patches should go on
those branches or somewhere else entirely.  Suggestions are welcome on

Sorry, I was imprecise in my wording in my email yesterday.  By "use
separate branches for individual developers", I meant that "branches
would be created for those developers who wanted to develop publicly in
a Git repository".  Specifically, I presumed from earlier discussion
that Chet would like to continue his development in the way he's doing
it for now, but his recent emails seem to indicate that he has no
objections for other developers to proceed as they wish in using a
public Git repository that's shared.

For the latter, I have no particular branch structure that I'm
advocating.  The primary job I'm volunteering for is to make sure what
Chet posts/releases finds its way into a well-structured set of branches
in the repository.  I leave it to other developers to come to a
consensus about what branch structure they want in the public repository
to facilitate their development, and I'll just implement that consensus
once we have it.
