How can "local branch" distributed?
Let's assume such patches not "local" but "private".
I have a lot of nodes, where server contains my patches
for ports, patches distributed via my anonimous CVS server,
and automatically applyed with
(successor to my PR/45200).
How can I distribute my patches across hosts without
separate hierarhy for that?
