+1 for having some extra branches.

I heard that any open pull requests referencing master will need to be 
rebased, and directly pushed changes to the master cannot be removed.

I have been using git for a while now and I think I can do this task. If
anyone is also looking to work on this task, he can join me :).

Here is the git proposed workflow for contributors:

First, I think we should discuss our branching model in Git. Currently, we
just have 1 branch "master" and to handle a project like Horn we might need
some extra branches to ease the development and deployment. Here is a very
good model that I have used previously and it will fit in our project
nicely [1]. According to this model we should have the following branches

1- master - The main branch (Trunk). It holds the horn's production-ready
2- develop - All the current development work is merged here. This work is
not yet released.
3- feature - These are temporary branches and once work is done in these
branches, it will be deleted and the code will be merged into develop
branch. All contributors will create a feature branch on their local git
repos against a Horn Jira issue and once the development is complete they
can open a pull request. If the pull request is accepted then it will be
merged to develop branch.
4- release - A release branch will be created before any new release of
5- hotfix  - If there is a critical Jira issue and we need to fix it asap
then we create a new hotfix branch, fix the issue and merge the code back
in develop and master branches.

This is a suggestion from my side and we can discuss on it.
