Isn't is normal to label releases using caps & underscores (something 
like GNOME_2_0_1), and branches with lowercase & hypens (so
gnome-2-0)? It seems unreasonable to me to create a special
branch for bugs destined for a particular release. Surely any
fixes that are checked in against the 2.0 branch should be in
all the 2.0 releases?
