If this feature, and possibly the History change, are finished. What I
would probably do is turn trunk development into 3.2. Then the only
question is whether it would be worth having a release line specifically
for 3.1. I think there are a few nice changes in trunk that are not in
the 1.0.x branch, but I am not sure if they would justify their own
release. We could possibly create a release specifically for 3.1 and add
in Outgoing Change Set support based on 3.1. We already have a patch that
does it.

In either event, we would just backport select features to the 1.0.x and
possibly 3.1 branch as needed. But these would mostly just be stable,
bug-fix releases.

When a file is committed, nothing but that file is updated. Not even the
folder that contains the file. When you run svn update, it will update
the Revision to whatever you updated to (HEAD). The Last Changed Revision
lets you know the last time that file was changed.

Honestly, when I look at this feature in CVS, I still have no idea what it
does or what it is trying to tell me. So I have no idea what supporting
it would mean for Subverison. In other words, sorry, I cannot answer.
