The developers of monotone, another distributed revision control
system, recommend making a branch for every bug, and pushing it to
any central repositories early in the process, before it's even
debugged. That way anyone in the project can look at it and offer
reviews and advice. This does mean a lot of short-term named
branches, but a problem with a not-yet-tested fix wont shut
anyone else out of their work.
And short-term branches ar e a lot easier to merge than long-term

Feeling free to push early to a branch without fear of
interfering with others' work would make this less likely.
