doc: add "Development" section

As I've started using a "next" branch for cooking changes before merging
into "master", this commit adds a section to the documentation noting
a couple of key points:

  - "master" should be stable
  - "next" is for riskier changes, and may be rewound occasionally

Given the need for a new section, it may as well contain other "nice to
have" info, like info on patch submissions and mirror repos.
