	archer.git "master" deletion (+branches cleanup)

Those are two big pages with many solutions, which one do you mean?

I quickly found there only dropping of the merged content; but in fact the
list of merged branches would be exactly useful during the merging:

Currently I track a separate file "IMPORT" generating the merged branches list
there (currently only 2, there were many), this could be done automatically
now, see the header of:

The convenience depends on whether it is for branch author or for the merge
maintainer. :-)
