You see its this lack of flexibility and clarity that naming a branch
release brings. I refer you to my earlier suggestion of including the
release number in the branch name to remove ambiguity and make it
easier to create for example 1.35.1 whilst release 1.36.0 is in
progress since it is clear where fixes should go.

Can I also suggest that people try out using git-svn for cherry
picking their commits. From memory you'd clone the repository as I
outlined in an earlier thread, then do:

git checkout -b release release
gitk --all

Then find the commits you want to cherrypick, right click and select
Exit gitk
Push back to svn:
git svn dcommit
