New Features

* Adds new configuration options "closed_branch_tag_re" (to identify
  tags that replace branches that have been closed) and
  "branch_name_prefix" (a value to be added back to the closed branch
  tag to turn it into the original branch name.

  These options are used in OpenStack to support scanning the history
  of a branch based on the previous series branch, even after that
  previous series is closed by setting "closed_branch_tag_re" to
  "(.+)-eol" so that the series name in a value like ""mitaka-eol"" is
  extracted using the group. With "branch_name_prefix" set to
  ""stable/"" the tag "mitaka-eol" becomes the branch name

Bug Fixes

* Fixes bug 1746076 so that scanning stable branches correctly
  includes the history of earlier closed stable branches.
