releasebranch provides stable snapshots of the engine. Most of the commits to this branch are tagged.
stabilisationbranch is used for fixing bugs in the run-up to release. This branch is created by branching from
mainor the previous release, depending if it's a major (feature) or minor (stability) release.
release_candidatebranch may be created for a few days before a release, if we need some critical fixes before release.
Development takes place primarily in the
mainbranch. This branch is not currently available for the general public.
Pull requests are currently on hold, while we fix all the workflow issues the current process had. For more details, see this announcement post. Sorry for the inconvenience.
