As we already discussed, it's not about the layout, it's about
a development model.

There is a model in "doc/development/development.howto.txt".
E.g. after the initial adjustments and the project repository
becomes stable, I expect that changes are made in a controlled
way, through "feature" branches, to be merged into "develop" (or
"master" whatever) after having left "some time" (TBD) for
reviewer to chime in.
As explained in
it helps keep "develop" clean and "master" super-clean.

No problem changing the layout.

  develop -> master
  master  -> released

But someone should make the necessary adjustments to the howto
(with the drawback that the reference therein would become
fairly confusing).
