It is possible to enforce this on a per branch basis. Just applying it
on master and anything starting with "emacs" (for release branches)
would do the trick.

It would also be possible to prevent, for example, accidental deletions
of emacs-25, or master as well as enforce the "don't check into emacs-25
without asking" rule.

All good things for newer developers.
