Will you revert your problematic commits that are now present in bleeding-jumbo or should I do it? We need to do this *now* before things diverge out of control. Actually, I think you should do this:

1. revert each problematic commit from bleeding-jumbo
2. merge bleeding-jumbo into bleeding-mask
3. cherry-pick the same commits to bleeding-mask so they now appear only in that branch.

From that point on, we'll be able to merge anything from bleeding-jumbo into bleeding-mask with little problems even though the branches will diverge.

If you don't feel confident with this I can do it for you. Just hold off from committing anything for now and supply me a list of the commits to revert (in short hash form, eg. 0965d1a). Or should I revert any commits you have made from a certain date/time on?
