I looked more into this and starting with 1.2 we do have a clfs-1.2  
branch with all of the right info.

It looks like I need to create a 2.0 branch and push my xml changes to  

So then when someone wants to use the 1.2 or 2.0 branch they can use  
clfs-2.0 or clfs-1.2 for the branch number.

I'll need to update our book download commands to reflect the changes.

The command will still be the same. git checkout clfs-1.2  for example.

I'm going to add the 2.0 branch today.
