With the following caveats:

- There is only one dev branch. I am -1 for creating separate dev
branches for 3.3.x, 4.1.x, 5.0.x and 5.5.x on the grounds it is too much
overhead for branches that are in maintenance mode where 99% of the
patches will be ported from 6.x

- Where a patch for 3, 4 or 5 is required that just doesn't make sense
in the dev branch then the patch is applied using RTC.

- We review this process in 3 months time to see if it is providing the
expected benefits without excessive overheads.

- We improve the "Which version?" web page to make clear which branches
are supported and at what level. I'll start a wiki page as a draft of this.

- The "Get involved" pages are updated to document this process
