Not necessarily. Providing latest LTS kernels for Dunfell also seems very
specific. For every extra year of official support for Dunfell, this can
offer a new LTS kernel version, that can be selected by PREFERRED_VERSION.
Creating a new branch for each kernel version seems wasteful. But I can do
that as well, if needed.
Hello Denys,

if I would like to add a 'dunfell/gizmo' branch to that repository, how
would it work if a given build needs both the kernel and the gizmo? Is the
repo supposed to be cloned twice into two separate locations on disk?
The page
doesn't make it clear either.
Yes, I believe that was the intended usage:
$ git clone git:// -b dunfell/kernel meta-lts-kernel-mixin
$ git clone git:// -b dunfell/gizmo meta-lts-gizmo-mixin

When TSC discussed the process for Mixin layers, we wanted them to be slim
single-purpose layers and using branches instead of whole git repos seemed
reasonable. Especially since we were not envisioning too many of them. But
if it proves to be a problem in the future, we can certainly revisit it then.
