My question here is: how do you keep the feature branches up-to-date with 
upstream?  Are you rebasing or merging?

I have a couple of simple scripts that will do a git merge in each feature 
branch, and then another one that will merge each feature branch to master.  
This has been working well for me.

The problem with rebasing, of course, is that it makes it difficult for 
others to work on the project with you.
