in https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/2410 I proposed to name the dist-git
branch for Fedora Rawhide "rawhide" to clarify the purpose of that
branch. There was also some feedback that Rawhide might not be the best
name and it could be renamed. In that case, the branch could be named as
this. This is just the first step to check if there is enough support
for this to move forward. The next step would be to start a change

Just had another idea, how about instead of branch down from the rawhide
branch to new branched to make Rawhide always use the fxy version that
it develops. So instead of creating branched f33 later we would rename
master to f33 now and then once we need to branch we branch of Rawhide
as f34? There could still be a symbolic ref called rawhide for the
latest rawhide for convenience. What do you think?

I like that idea. However IMHO packagers tend to forget about branching if they are not following Fedora development closely.

When they do that now, they still do changes in rawhide and they might not update their package in branched -- however in long term, this does not matter because their change is in all future versions.

When they do that after this, their change will be in branched but not in rawhide and in the long term, it will be lost.
