Andreas, I didn't say we should not move to - quite the contrary. 
I just want us to have a clear migration path for our existing workflow. Merge 
requests are quite popular for us (imo) and we got lots of contributions that 
way. So we have to have an idea of what to tell poeple on how to contribute 
after the merge.

In my first mail I already explained one way this could work. It's cumbersome 
but it works. I just want to know whether there are alternatives and - as I 
said in my other mail - I cannot imagine we are the only project that used to 
be on gitorious which got contributions through merge requests. How are others 
doing that? The one doing the kdevelop migration should also look into this, 
that's all I wanted to make sure...
