So it's time to clarify the branch names.

HEAD would contain the new features + obviously all the bug fixes.

RELEASE_2_8_0 would contain ... 2.8.0, what a surprise!

Instead of having QA_2_8_0, we could name this branch QA_2_8. Into this 
one, we merge all the fixes that apply to the 2.8 series. When we feel 
it's ready, we release 2.8.1-rc1 from it (or directly 2.8.1 ?)

My only question is: what happens if we need to release something 
quickly? I guess we could start from QA_2_8 but then it would contain 
all the accumulated fixes for this branch. This is a case where a
2.8.0-pl1 (a quick patch applied to RELEASE_2_8_0) would be handy.
