Does validator-0_8-branch already exist?

For 0.7.4, I have taken validator-0_7-branch as a base for building 
openSUSE packages and have seen right now, that validator-0_7_4-release 
has changed through this merge after the release date. Would it be in 
future wise for me and other packagers to stick to the branch rather to 
the release, because the as 'release' tagged files might have late 
changes a few hours later through such merges as done above?
