to be clear, I'm referring to the proposed requirement that everyone
does any non-trivial work in branches.

For reviewers, everything should at least be cursorily checked by
someone, multiple people reviewing something is completely fine.

Luke, I'm requesting that either:
* preferred (but I understand if you don't want to change anything):
git hooks are added to git.libre-soc.org that either push to the
mirrors or at least notify the mirrors to pull
* you allow the git mirror scripts to run more often than once every
24hr. I can modify them to space out checking each git repo if
instantaneous server load is an issue.
