+(11) not so important to begin with: branches
+     as the R-forge repository also is used to provide a source for installation
+     of the devel-versions by non-developers, the "trunc" branch (for operational
+     reasons, in R-forge this is the folder layer immediately below the main
+     distr project folder) should contain installable versions; also this is
+     the only branch for which there is a build service on R-forge. 
+     So the trunc branch should be reserved to (small) patches. 
+     Larger/longer development lines should be done in the
+     versioned branches (e.g. branches/distr-2.0); on demand, we could also 
+     think of developer indidividual branches (e.g. branches/distr-ruckdeschel),
+     but so far we have not seen the need for this. In each of these branches, 
+     there is a complete (cheap) copy of the project tree; here you can also put in 
+     "unready" things.
+     From time to time, and after thorough checking (R CMD check should not find
+     anything!) the devel branches should then be merged into the main trunc again
+     by the svn merge command and a subsequent commit; this should be reserved
+     to project admins, however.
