What do you think? ;-) As I said before, I'm new.

I'm reading it. Finally I found what I need: vendor branches.

I want something like that... Let's say when I start to work I download
pr1.0, import it, and start to modify. Later the vendor releases pr1.1, and
I commit it (as described in the book). And I keep on working, modifying.
Naturally I'll be able to produce patch for version 1.1, but will it be
possible to create patch for 1.0 (after commiting 1.1)? This would be some
kind of "automated backporting"...

Thank you for your answers ;-)
