Let's say I've once created the topic branch fixes/foo, which has now
been incorporated in the latest upstream release.  What is the best way
of dealing with this now-obsolete branch?  (Let's pretend for
simplicity's sake that it is not part of any other branch's base.)

Am I right to assume that deleting/renaming it would be unsafe?  Anybody
working with an old git-clone/debcheckout copy would end up recreating
this patch on every tg-cleanexport, unless TG_BRANCHES is explicitly

The other option would be to update the (now empty) topic branch, and
just let it rot there.  From what I understand, TopGit will smartly skip
over empty branches, so it will do no harm aside from polluting the
refs/heads namespace.

What would you do?
