release-2.0 will just keep getting bug fixes, and is the recommended
branch for usage (till release-2.1 branch is made down the line).
Minor releases (2.0.x) will be made off the release-2.0 branch.
Patches going into release-2.0 (bug fixes) get double committed into
mainline, but mainline gets other patches as well and is more dynamic,
hence not recommended for deployments. 2.1 branch will eventually be
made off the mainline.
