We changed the way we tag development versions. Prior to 5.1 we tagged
to the first release candidate of the next version of KiCad. In hind
sight this wasn't a good idea because we had to create a point release
(5.1) to address the gtk3/wxpython4 mess on Linux which was something
that we didn't foresee or every planning on doing. Moving forward, we
will not tag ahead and the development branch tag will be left at 5.1.0
until version 6.0.0-rc1 is tagged.
