Our workflow is a bit different, we have QA, marketing and other
stakeholders who may decide, after 3 weeks of QA validation, that the
version to release is not the tip of the -stabilization branch but an older
version (we then update -release with some older version from
-stabilization). You could say release-3.1-stabilization and
release-3.1-releases are topic branches; we don't.
