Note that REL8_0_STABLE is the tag/branch ... HEAD should be clear to 
commit to ... the error that Tom was eluding to was that I had mis-named 
the original branch as REL8_0_0, instead of REL8_0_STABLE ... if someone 
knows how to safely remove a branch that has had no commits made to it, 
please let me know, but from reading the docs, the suggestions that seemed 
to be suggested had very big *BEWARE* signs around them ...

tags are easy to move around and remove, branches, apparently, aren't so 
simple ...
