In svn, this would have been branches/lucene_solr_5_4.  Looks like git
now has it here (this is from the "git ls-remote" output):


Since this has "tags" in the name, it's probably a bad idea to edit that
branch directly.  I'm not sure what you would actually want to call the
new branch.

Do we think a 5.4.2 release is likely? I would think that this is NOT
likely, because I think it would require massive amounts of backporting
to make it work right with git.  As I understand it, we are backporting
all the git-related work to branch_5x for a 5.5 release and pushing
towards a 6.0 release, with these two efforts proceeding more or less
simultaneously.  If my understanding is wrong, someone please correct me.
