I'm trying to get everything ready for the conversion and there are
still a few points unresolved:

I was proposing to have two digit branches and three digit tags:

Geany-0_19 - maintenance branch
Geany-0_19_0 - tag
Geany-0_19_1 - tag
Geany-0_19_2 - tag

Do you agree or do you prefer some different naming scheme?

Does anyone know? If not, I'd just delete this branch.

I can create official Geany repository without them and one clone that
contains them so their authors can pick them after the conversion.
