Hi Karen, hi all,
the main issue i see with branches is that, they easily becomes incompatibles, which means that less people will test before things are integrated in main workspace.
by example for amber, lvti and lambda-leftover both change the frontend compiler in an incompatible way,
even if it can be easily fixed, it's an unnecessary barrier for testing in my opinion. 

I believe that the default repo should contains the code of all branches automatically integrated so people will be able to test without messing with branches.
