If only there was some sort of meeting where the kdeedu developers
could get together and decide such things... :D

Seriously though one advantage of having repos like 'kbruch' is that
you really only need to coordinate with other kbruch developers. So
the problems being addressed by various 'git workflows' are mostly
moot since I'm guessing most kdeedu apps have only one or two or three
developers who can communicate with each other quite easily. Its quite
a different situation then kdelibs and kde-workspace etc.
