I'm slightly confused as-to why this special org-8-master branch is
needed.  As far as I understood from Achim's message (2nd paragraph):


that so far maint supports Emacs 23.  Although this might have been a
coincidence, without a conscious decision.  It will continue supporting
Emacs 23 until Org 9.  Post Org 9, if required, one can choose to start
a new maint branch called maint23 for continued Emacs 23 support.

Given the above, I do not understand the need for a separate
org-8-master branch.  Is this a gap in communication, or am I missing
something here?
