 > Two things we should think about while preparing the new branch:
 > 1) How would the naming scheme for our mobile branches look like?
 Currently we have "tor-browser-
 second question:

 I don't see a problem using this same format. Unfortunately, as mentioned
 before, TB Android will begin overlapping with TB Desktop next year. So,
 either Desktop begins following mozilla-release at that time (next
 ~April), or we choose a unique name.

 > 2) What version number for Tor Browser for Android do we start with?
 Especially given that we are tracking Mozilla release and not esr anymore?
 Should we start over with 1.0?

 Originally I thought we would use the same naming scheme, because "these
 are both tor browser", but after thinking about this more we should
 probably start at 1.0. There are 7 or 8 releases between every ESR, so the
 version would become very confusing. I think if we follow Mozilla's alpha,
 beta, stable then we can start at 1.0 and we'll reach 8.0 by next April.
