Do we really need branches if you're going to do a release every month? 

I'm asking because creating/maintaining i18n branches is somewhat painful. You have teams that work on trunk mainly, others that work on stable mainly, so each time we "copy from trunk to master", we potentially lose some translations, for big things like KDE Gear and Plasma we have established this is what we do, but for smaller things we seldom do mass copies from master to stable because of different translation teams working differently.

Would it be possible just to release from master? For me it seems like you're not going to use the stable branch to do a second release if release time is just a month, no? Or am i misundersanding the velocity here and you're actually planning to have some x.y.1 release too?
