-  - Topic branches in the collab-maint repository should be named
-    USERNAME/DESCRIPTIVE-NAME, where USERNAME is the Alioth username
-    of the user creating the topic branch, and DESCRIPTIVE-NAME is a
-    something descriptive to distinguish the branch from the user's

-  - Topic branches may (and should) be rebased at will by the branch
-    owner while it hasn't been merged to any other public branch.  New
-    public branches should never be forked off a topic branch, and
-    only the owner of the branch should merge the branch to master
-    (after review, if possible).  A topic branch that is no longer
-    needed should be deleted.
+  - Topic branches should not be made public on the collab-maint
