This one doesn’t have a JIRA and is a dev-branch. We could ask to
prefix them with the dev handle, but this ruling is getting out of hand.

The purpose is to see how we can implement that we can etap-test module-

I did some pruning a few weeks back. We currently don’t have any
superfluous branches around.

I don’t want to restrict usage of branches, we should use them free and
loose. Barring the naming rules for branches that have a JIRA issue

Can we get back to shipping 1.3.0 now?
