I'm going to bite the bullet with meta-linux-mainline and rename the
master branch to "dev" this week to see what happens.
The layer index does already support this, it's just not exposed (at the time
I introduced it - some time ago - I thought it might encourage people to
deviate from the release branch names, but in hindsight that was probably not
worth worrying about.) So at the moment an admin can set an alternative branch
name. It would not be hard to expose it through the UI for layer maintainers
though.
