"Branch" means the 1.7.x branch is forked off the subversion trunk.
Thus begins the process where only specific bugfixes are applied to
1.7.x, until it passes enough tests and gets enough testing to roll out
release candidates. Which then sit for a few weeks waiting for more
bugs to be reported, and if nothing serious does happen in those weeks,
the candidate is turned into 1.7.0 gold.
From branch to 1.7.0 is probably at least a couple months. Possibly
longer. Depends on what shape trunk is in (especially the new working
copy format) at the time of branching.
