Subject Re: Thinking about 1.2 and moving forward

I agree this maybe the best option given the circumstances, but in the future we should avoid
this mess by reducing branch usage for only isolated unstable feature work.... Or get an SCM
that can handle merging. 

It should be possible to have seperate development branches and then be able to safly merge
them. IMO it is a massive problem with Subversion that it can not handle this... :-(

+1.  I think trying to merge 1.1 to the current 1.2 trunk would be a
nightmare, indeed.  Moving aside 1.2 and making the 1.1 copy a new trunk
is the best decision, IMHO.
