Don't worry if you can't follow this part, the important thing is that

Hmm, I'd say reset 4.3 to the v4.3.1 tag and close it for further commits.
Release 4.4.0 asap from master. Anything else will be a royal pita for
every users thats not just pulling branches from the repository.
As far as I understood the history would then look as if someone started a
local branch on v4.3.1 and did some commits and finally merged his branch
into master instead of back to 4.3 and others started from that point in
master. Just that 'someone' were actually multiple people and scripty and
the branch wasn't quite so local :|
