With git-cinnabar I *think* I have this working without having to fork
a new repo for every outstanding PR. is a duplicate of
#317 to fix ticket #17292, just so I had a 'dummy' set of commits to
put in one branch is an attempt to
fix ticket #17295. Unlike previous attempts with git-remote-hg, it
looks like I'm able to have more than one PR outstanding without them
stomping on each other.

If you can confirm that it's all OK, I'll finish writing up what I did.

I have multiple heads in my 'release-2.x.y' branch but I don't seem to
be able to *name* them, which means I don't think I can update the PR
if changes are requested? There's a '...' on the right-hand side of which looks like it's
supposed to bring up some kind of menu, which *might* have let me name
the heads I have in release-2.x.y... but actually does nothing in
either Firefox or Chrome.
