The upstrem branch at Tizen repositories should be a direct copy of
upstream's master (not release/2.18/master!) branch (or official
archives[1]). Everything else you want to have in your package needs
to be on the tizen branch. That is the rule.

To upgrade you import an archive or commits from upstream and rebase the
tizen branch onto the tip of the upstream branch.

To take *some* upstream patches from from release/2.18/master or
backport some from master without upgrading the whole package, commit
them on the tizen branch.
