Sorry - I'm reading too fast this morning.

If a bug is introduced into head (i.e. wasn't in the previous release) 
where would it go? The next release due I suppose.

Seems fine to me.

Would it be worth naming the next release 0.8-dev and then renaming to 
0.8 when it is released? (not sure if Jira allows this, I assume it does).
