      It's not my article, so I can't answer for the author. I suspect that's
      to "freeze the code" for release while others continue to develop
      unimpeded. With git that's an easy thing to do.

      A decade ago I would tag the head in SVN for a release candidate. If a
      problem showed up with that build (very rare) then I would fix it and
      repeat with the current head. I didn't use branches.
