I don't think anything special is required.  I just create normal git branches that I regularly rebase against the public mirror.  I don't usually have dependent branches, they are all based on trunk, but that too should be possible.

I did use stgit at one point, but now that we have a public mirror, I don't think it really offers much that plain git can't do.

Like Takumi said, if you are working against the public git mirror, only committing is affected by LLVM's using svn. Everything else is just plain git.
