git-series, at least, is intended to handle the back-and-forth: if you
actually publish the series and not just the final result, someone could
pull the series, make a (non-fast-forwarding) change to that, make a new
series commit, and publish their modified version of your series.  You
could then incorporate that change.  One of the use cases I developed it
for was collaborative development of a patch series.

(That workflow still needs a lot more tool assistance to become fully
usable, not least of which to assist with the process of merging changes
to the series.  Working on that.)
