Somewhat related is how we name the git branches. It would help me from
a buildfarm POV if we kept lexically them sortable, which could be done
at least for the next 90 major releases :-) by adding an underscore
after the REL piece, thus: REL_10_STABLE. I realise that's a way off,
but it's worth bringing up while we're discussing the topic.
Hmm, sounds a bit C-locale-centric, but I have no objection to inserting
an underscore there if it seems helpful.

Good. FTR I tested this with every locale on my system and the results were identical .

What I thought would be worth discussing is whether to continue using the
"_STABLE" suffix.  It seems rather like a noise word for our purposes.
OTOH, dropping it might be a headache for scripts that deal with branch
names --- any thoughts?


Just from the buildfarm POV it poses no difficulties.
