Hey all,

just changed CONTRIBUTING to reflect the pytest-2.8 reality:


In it i suggest we use a "2.8.X" branch for bugfixes of the 2.8 series
and master for features.  We could also think about using "bug" and "feature"
as branch names to relieve us from changing version numbers and to be more
obvious to people at the command line.

After that PR above is merged (or updated to the suggested alternative)
we should actually create the branches and update version numbers accordingly.

Also i noted that the 2.8.0 tag is missing unless i am missing something -- 
Bruno, did you actually follow HOWTORELEASE.rst as a checklist? :)
