It was introduced int 1.4.6 but is a rather obscure command.  There are
more generic tools for it that are more appropriate.  It has been left
out more-or-less on purpose, but I would not call it by design.

develop and master are branches for current development, which will
become 2.1 probably.  This is much of a moving target, it is most
appropriate to make patches against it, but probably you should use
either 2.0/develop or 2.0/master for bugfix patches and
error/warnings.  Anything remotely looking like features or improvements
should go to plain develop branch.

In OpenDNSSEC, the biggest GIT model for development was chosen, which
includes develop and master for every version.  For maintenance
releases like 2.0/master/develop there is little difference between
them.  I would chose 2.0/develop.

With kind regards,
