Even if it should not be possible to agree on ONE workflow, maybe it should be 
possible to agree on two or three (e.g. everything in master, or everything in 
feature branches, and maybe a third one) standard workflows, and document them 
properly. Then every project could simply state "we are using workflow (A|B|
C)" and things would be clear. It wouldn't be too much IMO to make it 
mandatory for "KDE" projects to use one of two/three official KDE git
