The name of the branches is not related with having gtk2 or gtk3 releases,
you can continue releasing gtk2 versions without problem.
The only issue should be adding strings to pootle,
but can be solved.

Using the proposed branching [1] and versioning [2]
should be good to have uniformity in the project.
Also branching for a gtk2 version means you ever will have a gtk2
version available,
if you branch for gtk3, and later merge with master,
you will loose the ability to do new gtk2 releases
(or need create later a gtk2 branch, as is proposed today)

> Sorry, I disagree here for one simple reason. The purpose of
> Image Viewer existance is not switching to new GUI toolkit version as
> fast as it appears, but do something useful for people who use it.
> So, the master branch should have version that the most poeple use
> (to simplify regular development process). Since the most of Image
> Viewer users are from Sugar deployemnts and use gtk2, gtk2 should be in
> master until people will start switching to gtk3. The exception is if
> Image Viewer will, somehow, handle gtk2/gtk3 at once (didn't look for
> such possibility).
> I've added you to http://git.sugarlabs.org/imageviewer.
> Flavio Danesse: if you are also will take part in gtk3 porting, post you
> nick on git.sl.o to add.
