I'm not sure what you mean here, if you have your own hauke.git or
~hauke/source.git you can push and delete whatever branches you like in
there so that shouldn't be a problem - or did you mean an easy way to
create and destroy *repositories* ?

I am not opposed to that, I guess it is a target maintainer decision in
the end.

Yes, that was the plan, only the canonical source.git shall have a
linear, immutable history.

For me the question boils down to whether we want to host the additional
repositories on git.lede-project.org (I guess yes due to visibility
reasons) and how we'll manage that, either by asking appointed admins to
create repos or by having some management system like Gitolite or Gitlab
in place...
