Branching
================
Each cycle after the feature freeze, we create a stable branch so development can continue in the master branch unaffected by the freezes.
1. Create the branch locally with: git checkout pygobject-3-2
2. Push new branch: git push origin pygobject-3-2
3. In master, update configure.ac to what will be the next version number (3.3.0)
4. Announce the branching, send email telling people to continue development in master and cherry-picking the changes that are appropriate for the stable branch
