No, that’s release team requirement that they branch on a release tag.

It would make more sense to tag on a compatible commit from the past and consider it a first stable release. (Of course it means that feature development would need to be aligned appropriately.)

I see that subprojects do the same mistake over and over (the previous time it was sfc, but I’ve heard similar concerns from bgpvpn). I believe that we should set clear expectations for all stadium participants about when they first stable releases happen and when branches are created. The current lack of guidelines for participants just makes it harder for the core team to maintain the setting, and for subprojects to become good citizens.
