So, please, think about the pain that people feel when they have to handle those manual merges, and use the devel projects.
I think I asked before if the build service is moving to a more capable VCS backend (for handling merges) in the long term. If we were to use git, for instance, and expose its - or part of its - functionality directly, we'd get less error-prone merges, a UI that many developers are already familiar with, and the possibility to maintain branches even outside the build service (or across build services).
I suspect it would save us a lot of pain. OTOH, I haven't surveyed the openSUSE developers or anything - maybe I'm the only one who thinks it could be solved this way :)
