Just as a side note, very similar idea implemented by Nexenta
GNU/OpenSolaris folks but on top of Subversion, called a "HackZone" .
Currently the entire Ubuntu/Dapper repository imported into Nexenta
subversion. Developers contributing to Nexenta utilizing branches and
taking advantage of COW while promoting experimental work to the "main"
branch. The entire paradigm also helps us to AutoMerge
"upstream" (Ubuntu/Dapper in this case) changes almost automatically.
Once Developer made its change in its "HackZone", he could just simply
commit & trigger AutoBuilder  by doing:
hackzone-commit -b <bug#>
Hope this info will be useful too.
