Have we come to a consensus that we will be working in two different 
branches? master and 4.0.x?

I'm still voting for doing all the development in the master branch, 
developing new features in a feature branch and merge them in when they 
are ready.

When we think the master branch has reached the point of a new release 
we tag that release.

A automated build system can then even build packages and tarballs based 
on the tags of the master branch.

I don't like working in two different branches, it makes merging in new 
stuff extra difficult imho.
