ok so I got unconfused... thanks dww & merlin...
in case I confused anyone else...

DRUPAL-4-7--1 is DRUPAL-4-7 and is a branch...
DRUPAL-4-7--1-0 is a release tag in the DRUPAL-4-7/DRUPAL-4-7--1

DRUPAL-4-7--2 is another branch.
DRUPAL-4-7--2-0 is a release tag within the DRUPAL-4-7--2 branch....

and .x is the laymans term for a dev version...

sorry for breeding FUD, I'm spreading diazanon in the pens right now.
