Subject Re: Git branches and development process.

I think I like Brane's suggestion (and Cos suggested similar structure

- Master should become the development branch for the next release.
- All individual ticket branches should be created off of the master branch.
- When we are working on the 2 releases in parallel, we should create a
special release branch and merge it back to master, once the master branch
has been released.
- Same CI rules as we have now apply - all tests must pass before the merge
to the master branch.

This structure is more intuitive and we will have easier structure for the
newcomers to understand.

I think we should have a vote on it. I will start a separate vote thread.
