patch management with git - some guidelines

I've raised some of our concerns in managing patches with git on the
vcs-pkg mailing list [1][2]. Even though it is early, I've already
received some interesting feedback. In particular, Russ Albery pointed
me to his guidelines on workflow / branch layout for managing Debian
packages with git, they are available at [3].

I found them very interesting, I recommend reading them, maybe we can
draft our best practices on branch layout along that lines ...
