CloudMonkey's git repo history is mostly linear and the work on master is simply getting synced
on 5.3 branch. I want to ask the community if anyone has any objections on just keeping master
as the working branch and have branches when they are needed (say documentation, feature work
etc) and once they are merged they can be removed. We have git tags to identify past release
so is it also alright with everyone to remove the support branches such as 5.3/5.2 etc.

This way we will have:
- one main working branch (master)
- branch based workflow: feature branches for doing feature work, pull requests or reviewboard
for bugfixes for non-committers
- master is aimed to remain stable
- master will have its own TravisCI and tests (in upcoming weeks)
- CloudMonkey aims for progressive/rolling releases that are backward compatible with older
releases and have clean upgrades

For this please vote with your comments/suggestions;

+1  approve
+0  no opinion
-1  disapprove (and reason why)
