I haven't got it: How are we able to release e.g. 2.1.2 without a
branch/new repository without using e.g. Fortress as container (nothing
against Fortress, I'm no specialist in these container things and maybe
this is the reason for my concerns)? I would like to give us some time
until we do a "production ready" release with all those new things. In
the meantime we should always be able to do a stable 2.1.x release?

Did I miss something?
