I've seen leading underscore being used by other people on github, so
let's settle on that for now.
Of course, if you do pull from a non-master branch, you should be
communicating a lot about that fact anyway; it's a bad idea for a lot of
other reasons as well.
I've updated http://wiki.cython.org/HackerGuide.
Here's an example of prior art in git workflows, developed I think
primarily for IPython:
It's essentially some Sphinx documentation with replacable names ("To
contribute to PROJECTNAME, you should get an account on github...") that
one can merge into ones own documentation. If anybody is interested in
looking at that I'm all for it.
