The current approach makes it that, in vlc-2.0.git, if you have a remote
of vlc.git (in order to cherry-pick commits), the 1.3.0-git gets pulled.
Everytime we push a new 2.0.x tag (git push --tags), the 1.3.0-git tries
to be pushed.

I would like to delay the creation of vlc.git, too, until some of the
important bugs are fixed.
