The branch and tag naming conventions are kinda old and crusty. Thanks to a feature of the migration script we'll be using to move to git, we have the option of changing our branch and tag conventions, and renaming all of the old crusty ones at the same time. That means we could actually do a clean migration to a new naming convention - and that we'll probably never, EVER have another opportunity to do so.
So if you think we should switch up the naming system, speak up! Let's start with something simple: GET RID OF THE 'DRUPAL-' PREFIX ON ALL BRANCHES AND TAGS.
