Those versions are not the versions that pbr will generate.

mitaka gets backports and local requirements changes only, so it will
get less commits than master.

Say mitaka gets 10 commits, and master 50.

mitaka  13.0.1.dev10
master 13.0.1.dev50

As soon as someone pushes a commit that adds a feature (sem-ver:
feature), master will bump to 13.1.0.devN
