FYI: you don't need a DRUPAL-6 branch to make a development snapshot  
release that's compatible with 6.x core.  just make a release node  
and use "HEAD" as the CVS branch, set it to "6.x" core compatibility,  
and give it a major number of "1", a patch level of "x", and an extra  
identifier as "dev".  viola, a 6.x-1.x-dev development snapshot from  
HEAD.  then, whenever you make the DRUPAL-6 branch, you can just edit  
this release node and you'll now have the option to move the CVS  
branch from HEAD to DRUPAL-6.  no, you don't need any special  
permissions on d.o for this -- anyone who can edit the release node  
can move it from HEAD if there's now a CVS branch that doesn't have a  
release node but that specifies the same version information.  after  
that "HEAD" will again be an available choice when creating new  
release nodes, e.g. for the initial 7.x port, or as a 6.x-2.* new  
feature series.

so long as you give the HEAD release node a version number that  
*could* someday be its own branch (i.e. major number >= 1), you can  
always move a HEAD release node to the appropriate branch once that  
exists.  see http://drupal.org/node/89699 for more.

someone should really update http://drupal.org/node/17570#HEAD with  
this wisdom.  any volunteers? ;)
