This is what's been happening with the MapQuest version of potlatch2
for the last few months - I was using git-svn for the core work, and
then maintaining the MQ version in a branch and publishing that branch
to a separate git repository. Now I need to do some work to rebase all
the changes onto the new repo, since TomH's version has better commit
attribution and all the SHA1s have changed!
I see all this as helping us move to having multiple versions of
potlatch2, where the one deployed on osm.org is just one of many of
varying levels of customisation.
