They are the problem of that strategy: if there are several authors
collaborating over the time of several releases, every time someone
takes a look at that old ticket (by checking it out) touches many of
his source files and has to pay a huge fee of recompiling for just the
look. After that, going back to her own branch: again. So you end up
applying patches as in the pre-git era, unless you are sure to commit
yourself. Do I miss something?
