Short version of the cmake git workflow:
* pull/update master
* for any change, create a topic branch from master
* work in the branch...
* when done, merge the branch into next and push

Once every week Brad and Dave from Kitware sit down and merge from next into 
master, to create a fresh master with the new stuff.

I'm quite happy with that.
I guess it doesn't work for KDE, or how could the merging from next into 
master be done ?
