There are many different ways to approach this problem. You could, for
example, create a maintenance branch from your tag at release 1.7. (You did
tag your code on release, right?) Or, alternatively, you could release from
the 1.7 development branch, merging changes to the mainline and continue to
use the 1.7 dev branch for patch releases but creating a new dev branch for
1.8. In this case, you'll need to dovetail the 1.7 patches into the mainline
and 1.8 dev branch.

But what if I have released 1.7, commited 1.8 and 1.9 but not released them
and need to fix 1.7. Can I create if 1.8 exists?
