Extensions skins and such all get a REL1_nn branch along with core. Some of these are bundled. It would be useful to make these a part of the core branch as submodules. Some of the make-release logic could be simplified and it would enable the bundled items to be a part of the tag as well.

I don't want to backport this behavior. It's inconsistent, and the tags will be all wrong. The logic to build a particular release--they're repeatable--operates on major version numbers. Adding the minor version numbers for 27/28 special casing would complicate things needlessly. Please abandon those changes.
This initial task is done, I just need to fix up the branching script for releases to do it automatically for 1.30+
