I was trying to produce a release.conf for a PR, but unfortunately the syntax for git isn't really flexible, i.e. I can't specify a specific branch other than master for a project.

It would be really helpful if there was a mechanism for specifying a specific branch.

Also, it seems that one needs to specify git or svn... one can't mix or match git and svn. Being able to customize either or would be nice because then I could use a git src tree and a FreeBSD svn ports/docs tree.
