[Mono-dev] Mono 5 branches

Hello Jonathan,

We still do branching but using different naming scheme, you can read more
at http://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/versioning/

The idea is to have fixed schedule and stabilization work happening
regularly. So far we managed to do it on time so branch name
could include the version as well but that's something we want to have a
flexibility on and be able to branch without making an public release
from the branch.

Hope this helps
