The rel/ branches live in our github repo until we tag their head; then we remove them. I figured a tag would be just as good.

If there is demand, I'm happy to reinstate the rel/ branches for the tags that have been generated from one, and to stop removing them in the future. It would help if I understood what use case we are fixing with it, though :)

Kind regards,
