i should have probably posted something earlier but it's hard for me
to justify time on this

IMHO the "rules for revolutionaries" only really works for large
projects with lots of developers

at james, IMO forking the code base was a fundamental reason why the
development community almost destroyed itself a few years ago. so i've
tried to persuade people to work together on trunk whether development
can be collaborative, not on branches.

rather than start this destructive cycle again, might i suggest that
the branch is just used as a useful sandbox and changes are cherry
picked rather than merged.
