We already have that, and git isn't going to change it much. Applying
changesets to a release branch is not markedly different anywhere, and
as far as I know neither git nor any other readily available SCM tool
has the ability to manage the recordkeeping that currently has to be
done separately. Maybe in the long run some extensions can be written
for that, maybe not.
