Meh... GIT commits are cheap, and not committing before an automated
build is a risk (or at least, it is with jhbuild, as that updates and
checkouts the remote branch, ostbuild probably doesn't do that unless
it's in the snapshot)

Well, I don't want to maintain two repositories with my branches on it
(plus the ones in github). But if that is the expected workflow, ok.

That (or a shorthand in vcsconfig) works too!

Thanks, patch withdrawn
