And I only suggested it in response to the argument that frequently
changing branches makes it difficult to track changes between
releases, whereas this is only really true with centralized VCS
systems; I argued that a DVCS makes this point not valid anymore; in
particular I had in mind the gitk tool for git which enables you to
visualise the merge history of the release, thus making tracking
changes very easy.
