 I think I understand, but I am curious: At what point would we trash the
minor release branch? For example, would we have trashed 1.4 by now? When
would we trash the 1.5 branch?

Also, do we tag from the short-lived branch 1.4.5-SNAPSHOT? When we delete
the branch, will the tag preserve the history of what happened on that
branch? E.g all of the commits that took us from 1.4.4 to 1.4.5?
