The point isn't always just for the release manager to be oblivious to
further changes, it may also be to prevent those further changes to
the master server (or whatever Git calls it) in the first place. I
probably don't understand how the master server is updated and
administered in a distributed environment. That will probably become
obvious if I do some more reading.
