Subject Questions about the security branches
Date Tue, 03 May 2011 18:19:01 GMT
Hey guys,

Do all changes for 0.20.2xx release go through branch-0.20-security,
then get merged to a particular -2xx branch? Ie to include something
in a 2xx release do you merge from trunk -> -security -> security-2xx?

Why create a new branch for every new dot release? Ie if the intent
that the branch will be dead after release, why not release from a
single branch?  It's hard to see that each branch is a superset of the

Why is there a new 4th component to the version number?  Shouldn't we
stick with major.minor.revision?  Why not use 0.20.100, Arun's
original proposal?

I noticed a fix version showed up recently.  Where's the
branch for that?
