I read your post several times, completely :-P ... I just think it didn't
argue against RTC being a form on control. (and yeah, maybe you weren't
trying to argue that?)

I think that is just playing with names. In Apache Subversion the "product
maintenance" is branches/1.8.x and branches/1.9.x (1.7.x and prior are
deprecated). trunk is for "next release".

In your naming model, where we've seen the name "develop" for "next
release" (aka where all new dev occurs), then I'd say making it RTC is

trunk/master was shorthand for "where dev occurs". If you want to use a
different name... okay. :-)


ps. fwiw, trunk/tags/branches isn't mandated in svn either. It was just an
ad hoc template we came up with back near the start of the project. We
assumed third-party tools would focus around that naming, which is
generally true, but svn itself has never cared.
