thanks for that one.

Which leads me to an earlier question. There is no way / scheme to
determine in git ( right now ) to see , which version will belong to
which release? I've looked at the tags and heads in gitweb, but could
not find a scheme providing that information. After all you tag the
packages AFTER the release. Is there any consensus made in advance? Is
there a way to determine whether a package will belong to a certain
branch ?

I'd happily create a wiki page to put those pieces together. Tough I
failed to find those so far.
