Subject: Re: [MTT devel] MTT: let's use git tags

+1 for using branches : branch usage is less error prone plus git makes
branching unexpensive.

as far as i am concerned, i'd rather have the default master branch is
the for the "stable" version
and have one branch called devel (or dev, or whatever) :
- git clone => get the stable (aka master) branch by default (safe by
default)
- if you use the devel branch, one can only assume you know what you are
doing ...

That being said, tags on the master branch is a good practice

Cheers,

Gilles
