First of all, to save dww's worthful time:
Branch, you meant ;)

And there won't be DRUPAL-6 branches for contrib, ever. Instead, create 
a DRUPAL-6--1 branch. This was changed recently [1].

Btw, it's generally suggested that you port your modules in HEAD (you 
can even create a developer snapshot release note pointing to it in the 
6.x category, e.g. devel does this [2]).
Then, if you decide that the time has come to branch your work (e.g. 
because you want to start developing in an experimental branch or for a 
new major release), you can create a DRUPAL-6--1 branch.

You can create 6.x tags for individual releases (e.g. DRUPAL-6--1-0 for 
module-6.x-1.0) both from the HEAD branch and from a DRUPAL-6--N branch 
whenever you want.
