Pardon me, but what the hell? Do I really need to explain that branches in
version control systems are intended specifically so that you don't have
to *SHOUT IN EMPHASIZED UPPERCASE* whenever development branch, also known as
trunk, gets broke? Or do we to understand that 1.36.0 beta 1, which is due
due days ago, is going to be rolled from trunk? Or for some unknown reason,
the testing process for release branch uses tools from random other branch?
