Should I always create a dedicated stream branch for my module?

Hi all,

I'm currently working on a module for sway. We basically just want to
have a stream that always contains the latest version of sway (including
all its dependencies), the same version that is also in rawhide (this
stream should be named 'rolling' if I understand the guidelines
correctly). In that case, is it better to just use the master branch of
the package git, or should I create a dedicated stream branch nevertheless?

Thanks,
Till

It is up to you. If the plan is always to have master in sync with your
module stream, then you can keep master. If you want to retire sway from
rawhide at some point, you would need to move to the stream branch.

Though I'd recommend separate branches for the components so that
you get a fine control over what goes into your module.
