It's pretty obvious where that point is.
(The great thing about distributed source control is you can marshall patches in large groups with less merge friction, which means sucking everything of interest out of a branch is much less time consuming. But you still need everybody to agree on where "upstream" lives and what they're resyncing with. Apache OpenOffice really has no point, it exists because Oracle had an attack of ego and Apache inexplicably went along with it.)
