Sure, I agree. I should have qualified the submitted link with "as a
reference have you seen..." ;-)

I got confused by "latest stable version" as a descriptor of master branch.
It detracts from the notion of "to be included in next official release".

Not mentioned and possibly to be considered is using the 'tag' feature on
the master branch for releases and other milestones.

The proposal is a very good strong protocol, imho. The only thing I would
also observe is that the instruction of the inclusion of the MIT license for
"contributors" was not mentioned there.
