I do understand, that it is a boost policy to change in HEAD and then
merge to the release branch. However I am currently in a kind of
split-brain situation:

1) We started thread_rewrite, as you might remember, and Anthony and me
already were asked to move this to HEAD.

2) We are bugfixing for the RC_1_34_0 branch.

3) I have several options:
    *) Do bug-fixing in RC_1_34_0, leave HEAD orphaned for the
       moment, move thread_rewrite to HEAD after release.
    *) Keeping HEAD in sync with RC_1_34_0 until release and then
       purge HEAD and move thread_rewrite to HEAD.
    *) Purge HEAD now, move thread_rewrite to HEAD now, do
       bug-fixing in RC_1_34_0.

I am following the first path for the moment to save time.
I would be very interested in your opinion in this matter, and
to receive some advice how you think we should proceed.
The main problem is, that HEAD and RC_1_34_0 are already very
divergent for path 1 and 3, and path 2 only costs time.

Ok, if I have time, I will look into this. For the moment the link is
working for me.
