KDE git workflow

As you already know, we have discussed the git workflow for KDE at the 
Platform 11 sprint, and have come up with a recommendation. Please find the 
full text here: http://community.kde.org/KDE_Core/Platform_11/Git_Workflow

The core ideas are that:
* master is always kept in a stable state that is ready to be used for 
starting a release
* development is happening in feature branches
* for larger projects integration branches will be used for further 
stabilization and wider testing
* changes going into master are going through a review process
* releases are coming from release branches

Please read the full text before commenting to get all details.

This workflow will be adopted by some core modules, and is recommended for all 
KDE modules. It's flexible enough to be used by modules of different sizes and 
different requirements in terms of stability, so we hope it to be a reasonable 
fit for as many people as possible. Obviously we'll have to see how well it 
works and adapt it, if necessary, but it should be a good start.
