That email is 2 years old, and does not seem relevant to what we're
trying to achieve. I've only ever had issues when *not* creating
immutable branches for these, cross subsystem scenarios. The
shared branches I create are always minimalist and never change.
I'm happy to take the patches and create a suitable pull-request for
you if you are uncomfortable with the process. I just need your Ack
to do so. Up to you.
