I feel there should always be a stable HEAD that you can push a fix to and expect to be able retrieve and do a rebuild with that fix. Is that unreasonable?
Right now, the only branch that meets that criteria is 5.8, so I disagree there is no benefit to it.
Whether it is worth the effort is a different question. I'm simply trying to make the point that the value doesn't go to zero because there isn't another planned release from that branch.
