As we have discussed on last team meeting, cleanup of unnecessary branches and tags was needed 
and we have also aligned branch setup with new workflow, so develop branch is currently acting the role of previous master.
master is currently the branch where last stable release is stored .
It is necessary that you will give extra attention when developing on and fetching from RichFaces Git repositories when you have already cloned them (either into private or GitHub personal repo). I encourage you to clone or fork them again from scratch.
