Isn't this a question on how you lay out your workflow? The patch-queue
branches are basically a tool that eases managing patches that end up in
debian/patches while retaining the merge capabilities of git (e.g. when
forwarding to new upstream versions, etc.) so there's not even a need to
push them into remote repos - you do have all the information on master
to recreate the patch-queue branch at any time.
