Exploring plan D, I was looking at the versions we currently generate on
stable branches and I think they would not convey the right message:


- but there won't be a 2015.1.1 !
- but this is not "under development" !

I was wondering if we could switch to post-versioning on stable
branches, and basically generate:


... which would convey the right message.

I /think/ all it would take would be, as the first post-release commit
to the stable branch, to remove the preversion from setup.cfg (rather
than bump it to the next .1). I think pbr would switch to postversioning
in that case and generate postX versions from the last tag in the branch.

Not sure we would do that for stable/kilo, though, since we already
pushed 2015.1.1.devX versions in the wild.
