Plus one further change now: if a newly created branch is in refs/heads/, 
require it to be in refs/heads/devel/ or refs/heads/releases/ (i.e. 
enforce a particular branch naming convention, in particular to prevent 
mistakes where people accidentally push a branch into refs/heads/ because 
their push configuration for user or vendor branches was wrong).
