Unfortunately I had to make a last minute change in my vacation
plans.  I'm in the office this week and have had to reschedule the
vacation two weeks into the future (Oct 18-25).

It is a manual process, I have to edit the database to redirect
the current changes onto the new branches.  If the branches had
existed before I uploaded the changes, they could have been created

I was thinking about this more the other day.  Maybe we want to
add a tag/label feature like the issue tracker on

Rules could add/remove tags and control submit, e.g.:

  if inserted lines >250 and not committer add label IP-Review-Required;
  if IP-Review-Required then submit only if IP-Review-Completed present;
  IP-Review-Required settable only by rules;
  IP-Review-Completed settable only by Janet;


The current Code Review -2..+2 system would turn into
labels, e.g. CodeReview-Approved, CodeReview-LooksGood,

If labels are indexed similar to the way they are on
we could then search for them.  That would make it easier to
write a query such as

  CodeReview-Approved IP-Review-Required -IP-Review-Completed

to pick up changes which Janet's team needs to look at, were approved
for submission regarding design/quality of code, but have not yet
completed the IP review process.

Eh, a bit off topic for egit-dev.
