FYI, I've pushed a stable-queue based on v0.9.20 (I would base it on 
stable-0.9.20 but there has been no reason for this branch to be created 
yet :p).

Slight question, should we always create the stable-xx.yy.zz branch? 
e.g. create it at the same time as the tag? Or should we only create it 
when needed?
