A redirect is best. Just putting my own thoughts down. Not the best place to do that.

> Haven't yet read the latter two, but the first one looks very useful and gives quite some insight, so I wonder whether we should just redirect people there, rather than rolling our own documentation on this somewhat complex and arguably tangential topic. Note that that first blog post states that versioned patch queues, while a mighty concept, are a feature you'll probably neither need to use nor want to use in most cases. Though, bitbucket's support for MQ seems to be just about them. Why that? Probably because regular (unversioned) queues are a local-only affair, so your remote repositories, whether on bitbucket or elsewhere, don't have to bother about them at all.
> So in order not to misguide others into using a feature they won't need, I propose rather than refining our own instructions, to replace them with references to external documentation about the topic. Of course, if there's something Kokua specific or Second Life Viewer specific to add, that'd belong on our own wiki(s), but I don't currently see anything like that.
