Hi everybody!
I follow the patch by Qi-Hardware since jan 2011.
Dear KiCAD developers, do you see that this not a feature, this is FEATURE!!!111

This path, setup by default, lets many people try distributed development and offer more opportunities to branch projects, testing, and it is better that current project manager.

Here our article about it:  http://src.lgg.ru/2011/12/kicad-schhist-view/
Launchpad blueprint : https://blueprints.launchpad.net/kicad/+spec/add-qi-hardware-patches

Please include it now, because after it, codebase will be changed.

Or you need over 9000 signature, like our russian administration? :)
