well... yes, but releases are marked by tags, not branches so what I really 
want is a tag.

I still use git so I have the possibility to update and can traceback what 
happened later

ok, that probably works with branches (didn't test)

shouldn't there be a subtree split somewhere ? IIUC pull is only merge from the 
remote to my local repo,
not the other way round
