I found a nice description of a workflow[1] that, if I am not
mistaken, would please Joris: contributors prepare carefully thought
out pull requests, eventually rebasing them if necessary so that no
conflicts arise upon merging, and shoot out a pull request. This is
how it looks like from the main developer's (main branch) control


(of course, core devs will have something similar, so that you can
think of a hierarchical structure whereby a new dev would request pull
from a core dev and only after some time in the tree of a core dev
would a pull request be issued against the main branch).


[1] This is the description of the workflow that includes instructions
on how to test, etc.
