That said, I think my team is the only team doing this. (Or at least, none of the other active members of the IRC channel talk about doing this.) So it might not be anything more than a "nice to have" especially since no one else from the project has chimed in.

So when we discussed this in Tokyo, we had the view that folk *either*
run master -> master, or they run release->release, or rarely

We didn't think it made sense that folk would start with a stable use
case and evolve that into an unstable one, *particularly* early in the
unstable cycle.

So - if there's one team doing it, I think its keep-both-pieces time.

If its going to be more common than that, we can do the legwork to
make tags early on every time. But I don't think we've got supporting
evidence that its more than you so far :).
