Do you put your quilt series in some handy network place where
someone can pick up a tarball?  If so, then the user can do:

	$ git checkout -b branch-to-look-at-stable-series base-sha1-for-series
	$ curl_or_wget ... get the tarball from greg's public area
	$ unpack-tarball
	$ git quiltimport --patches place/where/tarball/was/unpacked

Yup - you shouldn't have to change anything (except possibly making the
quilt series easily accessible).  Users who want to play inside a git
sandbox should be able to make their own throwaway branches and easily
import your stuff.
