[tcpdump-workers] [libpcap] Consider not pushing your work-in-progress branches upstream (#420)

As discussed a few months ago, this is how github is being used.

1) "master" for tcpdump, libpcap and tcpdump-htdocs lives on
            http://github.com/the-tcpdump-group
   We pull daily from github master to the server at bpf.tcpdump.org.

2) release branches live on bpf.tcpdump.org, and are pushed daily to github.
   The script looks like:

(cd libpcap && git fetch -f github master:master &&
        git push github $(git branch | grep libpcap-) &&
        git push --tags github )
(cd tcpdump && git fetch -f github master:master &&
        git push github $(git branch | grep tcpdump-) &&
        git push --tags github )
                                
3) vulnerabilities are developed at
   git+ssh://bpf.tcpdump.org/tcpdump/master/git/tcpdump-security

   which is only accessible to developers with accounts on bpf.

Previously, all branches on bpf were pushed to github, but now only branches
that start with tcpdump- and libpcap- are pushed.

A security release 4.7.2 is being prepared today, and once the distro folks
have been notified so that binaries can go out, it should go public within a
few days.
