FWIW, we (Nexedi) did it internally to include several fixes/changes we
need, one branch per fix + merge back to "master" branch (aka trunk in
svn terminology), all based on "upstream" branch (which is just
buildout's trunk).


Each bug-fixing/feature-adding branch is named after the corresponding
launchpad bug number.

We didn't create branches nor tags corresponding to buildout releases
& branches, as far as I can see. We would be happy to help converting
the repository - and start hammering it with patches :) .
