OE-Core has six month development and release cycles, roughly being April and October each year. As each release is made, the release is given a name and its expected that other layers/repositories that would with the release use the same branch name to denote compatibility.

With the use of the git source control system, users are free and actively encouraged to create clones of the repositories to develop and submit changes against and they are also welcome to share branches in the contrib repositories as appropriate.

For OE-Core, a maintainer is generally appointed for the release branch at release time and this is recommended for other layers too.
