As long as everything compiles, the examples actually work, and
there aren't any serious test failures (this last is open to

Indeed. Great work everybody!
Of course, there's no reason not to also have a stable branch
updated at the same time as a numbered release.
What would be the benefit of a third branch?
Not a branch in the same sense, but a tag (which in SVN at least are
just branches that aren't updated). So we update master every 6 months
as the release branch, and just tag it each time with a version number
(2.0, 2.1, etc.). Then I'll build binary packages and update the website
with that. Easier to remember a version number than a git hash. ;)
