No, of course not. I consider the git branch to be in eternal flux. 
The git HEAD may contain valuable usability patches but also other meh 
stuff that can wait until the next major release. I do not want to dig 
through hashes and commits to find out whether you solved some 
blocking issue.
A patch tracker, containing patches you (the developers) consider 
critical and which should find their way to the user ASAP, that is a 
place where I would look.

Cheers, Eric
