Thanks, Einar.

As far as packages are concerned, the infrastructure is very flexible. I 
have three Ubuntu "branches": 1. stable (as in 2.1.5), 2: current git 
(head) and 3: experimental builds. One way to go about is to have: 1 as 
it currently is, 2: with the most stable in head (before the disruption) 
3. with the disruptive changes. I still think 1. should be updated with 
a maintenance release sooner rather than later (2.1.6?) with the most 
current stable head before disruption. It would be a nice fall back, and 
I don't see any reason to keep the stable (1) with the old tag 2.1.5.

What I would not recommend is to create parallel builds within the same 
branch. Lots of reasons, but primarily the platform would not allow it. 
People don't download versions of cinelerra for Ubuntu, they are pushed 
as software updates by the system. So the users select since the very 
beginning the type of updates s/he needs: stable (1), edgy (2), 
experimental (3). Think debian, in essence. Given this, having the most 
stable in 1 would probably be the most sensible solution, a reasonably 
stable  head in 2 (but still with testing), and experimental in 3.
