Thanks. Basically, I think the way the "release" branch should be used is
just to collect the release relevant changes up to the release, and once
that's done (and there's a tag for the release), it should simply be merged
back into the master branch to die there.

That way, we can recreate it for each new release, including emergency fix
releases, which would go on top of the release tag.
