> Each branch has its own version of README.txt. When a maintenance  release (e.g. 2.1)
needs to be updated, we add a new bug fix branch (e.g. 2.1.1). We don't create a release from
this branch, but tell users to check it out of svn. When we provide a bug fix release to a
maintenance release we need to update README.txt in the parent branch, adding the following
line: "This release has been deprecated. Please use version 2.x.y.", with a link to the svn
web interface for that version.
