I guessed as much!

I can see you reasons for doing this and as always it's a matter of
preference. Our strategy is to continually integrate changes from
dependencies into the mainline. When a release is made, the release
branch has the dependencies stabilised using the -r flag.

This shifts the manual burden to the release process but gives you the
confidence factor for your release branches while allowing continuous
integration on the main line.
