Andrew Stitcher commented on PROTON-790:
----------------------------------------

Another benefit of using tags is that they can be signed by the release manager.

> Use git tag for release (rather than branch)

> I think it would make sense to use git tags to indicate the versions of 
> releases including alphas and betas.
> So instead of having  branch with a single change on it we should use a tag 
> to indicate a release. This would also allow the branching structure and the 
> releases to be independent.
> As an example the recent 0.9-alpha-1 could be a tag on a 0.9-release  branch. 
> Or it could just be a tag on a one change branch (to change the version).
