Dear MXE team,

Thanks a lot for the discussion.  We have a pretty clear picture here:

- Nobody voted for option 1).
- Option 2) was preferred by some, but no volunteers were found.
- Option 3) is the way to go.

So I hereby retire the stable branch!


I also updated the documentation.  Please have a look at the new
history entry and feel free to correct any mistakes:


To all committers (the core team), please adjust your .git/config
so that every push to "master" is also pushed to "gh-pages":
