Proposal for further openmoko kernel development

I've started to play around a bit with topgit and created three branches
in the kernel repo (om-2.6.31-rc5, gta02-2.6.31-rc5, glamo-2.6.31-rc5).
So if you want to try it out yourself feel free to commit some changes
to those or add more driver specific trees.
So far I'm not really convinced that topgit is really needed. All it
does, as far as I can see, is auto merging of depended branches with `tg
update`. But the only branches which do have a decency on other branches
are machine branches and the combined branch. And I guess we can handle
those without topgit.
Despite that topgit has caused me quite some pain and I would have been
a lot faster using only plain git to archive my goals. That's probably
just because I know git better then topgit, but topgit has some extra
steps involved which I feel are not needed for what I'm trying to do.
Furthermore fork-bombing just because I entered a wrong command is not
speaking for a tool either.
So for those branches I intend to maintain (glamo and jbt6k74) I won't
use topgit. But ofc ourse others are free to use topgit for their branches.
