I work with several other projects that use Subversion and I think my
mind is confusing them. I honestly thought /branches/xx always
contained the latest stable release. I stand corrected!
What I would ideally like is a place the latest stable release in a
particular branch can be chcked out from, up to and including the
current branch. This allows a blog to run on the latest stable
release, but also allows you control in that a blog will stay on a
particular branch until such time you want to switch it to a brand new
branch release (in the case of 2.3 -> 2.5, it means you can
update/test plugins and themes before doing so).
It may go against the prinicple of tags but could 2.5.x trunk
development be put into something like /tags/2.5-trunk and leave
stable releases in /branches/2.5 ?
