I think that while working on, we managed to prepare a development 
model that could work well. In fact, we now have three options:

1. Stable version - now
2. Forthcoming updates for stable version - my ppa
3. Development version - nightly builds

I suppose that in this model, we will continue to develop. Just the fact that 
the update 3.5.13 => was very big and after a very long time. This 
can be attributed to the fact that we were at the beginning of the 
introduction of this development model. Now we will try to prepare SRU 
versions smaller and more often.

However, about my proposal to use branches for further development I want 
write later. Let me get some rest :)
