As I mentioned. The master branch (HEAD) is Linus' tree, and each
stable tree is on its own branch. You'll find shortlog summarizes the
main branch, so yes, gitweb's summary is a bit confusing based on your
assumptions. This is a new tree and hasn't been publicized until now.
It does make sense to have its head be the newest stable, I'll switch
that around.
