This just sounds like a painful workflow to me. I would suggest not
doing this at all, but rather using tags to mark specific releases,
and using individual branches for continued development (e.g., stable
or v1.x or whatever is most appropriate). You can have unstable or
master or dev or whatever for developers to work on freely without
breaking releases (albeit, there are many different workflows you can
use to manage the transition from unstable to stable code).

I would avoid using subtrees (subdirectories) within a Git repository
to represent different releases of the code. Git already tracks
versions. That is redundant and messy. It's really an outdated way of
thinking about version control.
