Would you elaborate on this a bit? How do you lay out your branches,
how do you or does it select the commits/branches to turn into
patches, how does it flatten them into a linear series of files, and
how does it integrate them with the SRPM?

So you have dozens of patches? Is each patch useful by itself? Let's
say you have a couple of fixes against upstream, and two new
features you developed on top of upstream, how does someone else
extract e.g. the first of the two features for their own use?
