The workflow I referred to *does* merge into master, but only after
actual Release, not before. It allows bleeding edge to proceed on the
Cog branch while have a stable reference point while organising the
Release. This seems useful, but I've not had a chance to use that
workflow myself, so I'll say no more on it :)

IIRC Eliot has used his gut feeling in the past for declaring a specific version as stable. So I'd say it's up to him to decide when the first stable release on GitHub is ready.
