If you look at other branches, 4.2, 4.3 etc all the tagged releases are done on the branch;
there is no separate release branch like in this case 4.4-RC20141014T2316. It’s just a matter
of ease here, I can always git fetch and checkout a tag, but historically we’ve put tags
on the release branch that we cut out.

I also wanted to discuss why we add -SNAPSHOT at all, what’s the harm in say keep the next
version to 4.4.2 (if we have 4.4.2 in future)? This diverges code (in git terms) a lot, why
not just switch to the next version? When building rpms or debs (in changelog), we can still
add a suffix but those changes would introduce minimal divergence.
