This is probably off-topic for the list, but the whole reason Git was
built was so people working on separate branches of Linux could
publish and share their code without giving everyone commit access to
Linus's computer.

I successfully used Git recently to take a look at the very large
WebKit patch someone wrote to use V8 in the Gtk port.  They published
their branch, I pulled it, and I could then use my normal tools to
poke at the code.
