Currently my branch and probably yours don't have real commit histories,
mine at least gets nuked around by stg according to what goes on and
then rewritten wholesale. That's great for what we use them for.
But we can do with an new additional branch that isn't like that, it's
basically the openmoko equivalent of the kernel.org torvalds repo where
atomic patches get committed and the history is permanent and linear.
(If we didn't like a patch and need to throw it out, we have to make a
git revert "antipatch" and commit it -- hopefully this is uncommon).
But we have to take account of a living kernel.org then a frozen
mokopatch branch layer similar to how our branches work today. It's
clear this is git's "bread and butter" but it's also clear there can be
many ways to get things done with git and some are better than others.
So any experience along these lines is gratefully received.
