In the tools/release repo we have two scripts that create branches: one for the tarball release (branch.py) and one for the train (make-wmf-branch).
The train branch script is fairly inefficient, and branch.py is fairly efficient.
We should merge these scripts, and favor the approach taken by branch.py.
- Make branch.py push for both code review and directly to HEAD
- CentralNotice branches from wmf-deploy rather than master -- will need to be accounted for somehow in branch.py
- Modifiy docs for adding an extension
- Wikitech-l email pointing to new docs
