I'm not sure about the part about tagging the master branch.

In your example, if someone checks out v8.0.0-dev, they would not get
the latest version of 8.0.0-dev, i.e. master, but the *first* commit,
which seems odd.

I suppose we could call it v8.0.0-base or something like that, but do
we really need this?
