The QA_4_1 branch will start when the first release candidate for 4.1.0 
is published. It will then receive fixes for 4.1.x.

This means that when 4.1.0-rc1 is published, we can resume adding 
features in the master branch.

We try to fix bugs in the most recent QA branch, so that users of the 
stable family can benefit from the fix. Sometimes, the fix is evaluated 
as being either not urgent or risky for the current QA, so it's done 
only in master.
