Are people here disagreeing on whether a previous version of master should be retained and marked stable when a bug fix is imported into master?  That should allow testing of new bug fixes against a
stable version of master.

Hopefully this will satisfy everyone's needs.
What I (and others) need is a "stable" branch (whatever named) I can
- branch off my own development to work without being affected by others
- compare and test my changes against, which requires that the original branch 
- merge my development (branch) into when I'm done and I and others are 
that my development does what it should and doesn't destabilize the branch.

I don't see how server release branches would do that.
