The 2.16.z release tags already contain the latest 2.16.z.  It was decided as a strategic move to drop the x.y-dev branches during the transition to a cherrypick model, and as a matter of release
process to always cherry-pick back our changes for the next release to the x.y-release branches.  This is the process I'll continue to follow unless pulp decides to make a change to the release
process outlined here:  https://github.com/pulp/pups/blob/master/pup-0003.md

If the pulp team feels the need to add additional branches to support pulp tooling and automation, the pulp team has the ability to add them in github.  As long as it is spelled out clearly which
branch to open cherry-pick PRs against and to build test builds off of; and a tag to build release builds off of; build team tooling is happy.
