[Mono-dev] mono git

I am somewhat confused by the git sources.  I would have expected to see a master, and various tags, and branches if people are working on separate lines of development...  Instead I see no tags at all, a zillion branches, and if I checkout mono-3.2.8-branch, then I get a detached head.

Worse yet, I've had some issues where I checkout master and can't compile.  Which suggests that developing directly on master also isn't a great way to go.

I guess I can checkout mono-3.2.8-branch, build some stuff, then stash, checkout master, and apply stash?  And if it doesn't build, assume it's somebody else's fault?

I must be missing something.  What should the workflow be like?
