To that end, now that the freeze is upon us, we really *must* make a
final decision on my proposal for CVS branches:
The "DRUPAL-5" branch has been the source of much confusion in the
contrib repo in terms of how it interacts with the release system.
If you doubt this, I will get angry, since I've spent *dozens* of
hours (re)explaining this to people via email, IRC and in the issue
queues. I'm proposing we completely prevent anyone from creating a
"DRUPAL-6" branch. Instead, when they're ready to branch their code
for the 6.x-1.* series, they make a "DRUPAL-6--1" branch, just like
they would make a "DRUPAL-6--2" branch for the 6.x-2.* series...
This will help them remember that "DRUPAL-6--1" is only for 6.x-1.*
code, and if they're doing something that's slated for a different
series, it belongs in a different branch.
Please comment in the issue:
Ultimately, this is "RTBC", namely, it needs Dries's final approval
or rejection. ;)
