AFAIK, from what I've read about svn, the branch should be 
copied to something like /branches/1.5.x/ so that any future bug fixes 
goes on in there. From what I understand, all major code changes go on 
in /trunk/ and before you start developing the next version, you copy 
your current /trunk/ (same time you make your last tag, or copy from the 
last tag if done later) to a folder within /branches/ The reasoning for 
that is so that if need-be, you can update the 1.5.x branch while 
developing 1.6 or whatever matt is versioning it as.

Just my .02
