New Branching strategy short version:

The branch 'master' will be the upcoming major release (e.g. R15).
Branch from this to submit patches for the next major release.
(New features and major changes)

New branch 'maint' will be introduced AFTER R15, and will be the next maintenance release (e.g. R15B01)
Branch from this to submit patches for the next maintenance release.
(Bug fixes and minor changes)


The 'pu' branch will be based on 'master' and we will later add a 'maint-pu' for the 'maint' branch.
"

Also do not use 'dev' it will never be used again, and will be removed 
from github soon*^(TM), also out of date.

I will include this in 'pu', I rebased the branch upon master, and did a 
small change in the commit msg.

Thank you for the contribution!
