If not done yet, we have to decide to go for one of two approaches.
(1) .stable tracks .dev, but lags. Takes lots of efforts.
(2) .stable diverges from .dev, not keeping up at some point. The
"fish bone" branch-off approach.
Yes, so instead of a .stable branch that lags behind .dev, we have a
fish bone approach, were we split from .dev for each stable branch.
I would prefer (2), and I think Angstrom decided for this as well
given the 2007-1 naming??
