At Linaro, we already have a set of scripts that do that. We're now
moving to git worktree, and I think it's going to simplify our work
considerably. But honestly, I'd rather not force anyone to use any set
of scripts, and let people work directly with git, so I'd be more in
favour of having a server-side solution, if at all possible.
