Just an idea (and I may have misunderstood the process); why not name
the trees for the people they are going to, for example

test-2.6         -> linux-ia64-tony (the main IA64 development area)    -> linux-ia64-to-mm (patches waiting to go to -mm series) -> linux-ia64-to-linus (patches waiting to go to official kernel)

I'm still not sure where the other release tree fits in all of this

Under this my thinking was a developer sends (non-trivial) patch that
first goes into -tony where it makes the core ia64 developers happy,
gets moved into -mm where it is picked up and used by a wider
audience, eventually it gets put into -linus where it is moved into
the main kernel.  Smaller patches, like a compile fix or whatever, go
straight from -tony to -linus?
