We should have all the options anyone wants.
I'm talking about the default behavior for C-x v v.

Also Bzr.  When I was editing Emacs sources using Bzr, C-x v v
sent all my changes to the repository on Savannah.

Perhaps this is because I made a "bound branch".  I used Bzr that way
because I wanted the same simple behavior that I had had with CVS.
With Bzr, that was possible.  Why shouldn't it be possible with Git?

                                            doesn't scale well to Git.

Could you explain what the obstacle is?  I don't see it.

I have made a local Git repository cloned from the one at Savannah.
Supposedly 'git push' would send the changes back to Savannah.  What
is the conceptual difficulty in having C-x v v work with Git just as
it did with Bzr -- commit and push?
