Because I believe HEAD should be a persistent stable rolling
release URL (always summer in trunk principle) with experiments
in branches. Managing branches with git is much easier than svn.

There seems to be quite some reluctance to allow anything much
other than bugfixes and some, apparently, would like to see the
3.5 branch officially EOL'd sooner than later. We're prepared to
put some effort and resources into making sure it retains some
viability and vitality for at least another 12 months.
