The branch for 0.9.21 is certainly not dead. I just pushed some fixes to
it the other day and have regularly pushed updates to it ever since
0.9.21 was released.

See here:

The fact that master is based of 0.9.19 is just a quirk of how things
worked out. Everything that is in 0.9.21 (and the stable-queue branch)
are also in master, so it's very much "newer" than 0.9.21.

Yeah don't worry, it's just a quirk of how things are orgianised. I'm
planning to push a tag to master to make master compile as 0.10.0-devel
or at least 0.9.23) but need to get approval from Lennart before I do
that (the version used inside configure.ac is actually generated from
git-version-gen script, so it's labelled as 0.9.19 due to how the git
tree was organised).

If you are doing any work, then master is likely a good place to do it.
If you prefer to do it against stable-queue, then that is likely also
fine. Rest assured both master and stable-queue are quite active and
despite it's lower version number master is newer and contains more
(have a look at git cherry if you want to confirm :D)
