I agree. I read the wiki about the 2 approaches of merging topics and I
have to say I "git" lost in there ...
My git knowledge is limited and I don't feel comfortable enough to try all
the things described there - this is why I decided to ask from
one of you to revert the topic from "next" so the build will not be red ;)
