   I would not try to force the build system subrepo into petsc-release.   In fact I would advocate keeping all the old petsc-release-xxx and ONLY doing the petsc-release with bookmarks (or whatever they care called) going forward from the next release, so petsc-release would only contain petsc-3.4 and later explicitly it would not have bookmarks (or whatever they are called) for petsc-3.3  petsc-3.2 ….. 

  We are changing to a new model but the old stuff stays under the old model. (Hence petsc-release won't even exist until the next release.)
