Right, but that's actually done for us automatically when we push to the
new branch-2.6.

Come to think of it, that *could* also work provided that cutting the
branch really is straightforwardly taking HEAD (and not say, starting
from the previous release branch).  I think I like your plan better, so
I'll assume that for now.

OK, one minor change is that I'll only leave an all caps tag on actual
stable, not on old versions (so that the important versions are visually
distinct), which I think is what you originally meant anyway

  so 2.2.x
     2.4.x STABLE
     2.5.0 CURRENT
     2.6.0 HEAD

I go!
