[Olsr-dev] 0.6.4 release and "howto do it"

I think its time to test a new release system for the next release, 
otherwise we will get nowhere with it.

Based on the discussions  we had in the last months I think we need two 

- a place to push new stuff which will be integrated into the next release
- a place to push bugfixes for an existing release (and bugfixes only!)

My current plan for this is the following.
1) I will rename the "master" branch into "historic_master" in the next 

2) When we start with the 0.6.4 release, I will create a new master 
branch, based on current stable.
3) I will also create a "stable_0.6.4" branch where we can put fixes for 
4) We then can test the 0.6.4 branch for build problems. As soon as the 
packet maintainers and testers agree, we will tag a 0.6.4 release.

New development can be done in the master branch... if someone wants to 
work on something big, he can either create his own branch or use his 
own repository... using your own repo has the disadvantage that you most 
likely will not get much feedback.

We just need to keep an eye on "fixes" in the master and cherry pick 
them for the current "stable".

I plan to remove the stable branch completely, so we do not have the 
problem of people pushing into a "stable branch" because the didn't 
heard about our change.

@Hans Christoph: Do you think we should also create a 0.6.3 branch to 
collect bugfixes for the Debian release version? This would simplify 
maintaining the Debian packet I think.
