We have followed the suggestions of all the other flavours and created
git branches for each series:

There is no master branch at the moment.

With bzr, it was the Ubuntu Release team that created each development
release branch from the last commit of the previous series branch. It is
probably a semi-automatic process that they run.

It is probably easier to keep it this way than switch to a more normal
git workflow (with master having all the development work).

While we wait, there is no reason that someone couldn't create a git
branch, do the jack-mixer fix, and push it to their own git repo with a
commit referencing the bug. Then it would be ready for merging once the
development series branch is created.

It is probably a good idea to practise this and document it for "non-dev
team" new contributors. Our seeds page needs updating anyway:
