release-related minor questions (post switch to git)


I just wanted to have your thoughts on the following little details
involving the creation of GDDB releases.

  1. The branch name: Should we continue with the same naming scheme?
     At the moment, we have:


     I think this odd naming scheme comes from a CVS limitation,
     and that we could switch to something such as:


     On the other hand, the name is not *that* bad, and changing it
     may break some pre-existing scripts. Since they would need to be
     changed anyhow...

  2. Do we need a tag for the branch-point commit, or is it sufficient
     to just document it.

     I am wondering if anyone has ever used that tag, and whether
     they would use it with the git repo...

  3. For the release tag, the tag name syntax is like so:


     Do we want to continue using the same format? In particular,

       3.a: Do we still need the date in the release tag
            (that information is part of the tag)

       3.b Same as 1; use a more natural syntax re version number?
