No. As I said, I'm proposing a Sunrise-layout layout. dev -- branch which contributors use to work on their ebuilds. reviewed -- branch which users use. When commits are reviewed, fast-forward merges are done from dev to reviewed. Attempting to automatically merge multiple independent branches will inevitably result in unpredictable final state. -- Best regards, Michał Górny
