I am thinking about the psychology of working on a change and getting it all working in "unstable"
and then waiting to see if the RM or PPMC or who exactly decides it is good enough to be in
"stable" trunk. If I'm a committer then I should be trusted to not screw it up in the first

If the project thinks it is near release then the group ought to work in not making unstable
changes to trunk. We are all grown ups here aren't we?

In the 3-Tier scheme how many buildbots and test rigs are required vs. the work in trunk method?

Sorry I've been a proponent of KISS for quite awhile.

One thing I like about SVN is that it discourages branching to necessary times while git encourages
branching for a whim.

These are my opinions, it is the project's choice.
