Re: [Subclipse-users] Recommendations for branch/tag structure for multi-developer project

I suspect you meant to send this to users@subversion.tigris.org, not
Subclipse. You will certainly hit a wider audience with more opinions.

I would create a branch for a task, perhaps with a by developer grouping
layer above it to break up the tree. Then just delete the branches when
they are done.

Personally, I prefer the model that Subversion (and to a much lesser extent
Subclipse) follow. Generally people work on trunk. Development branches
are reserved for special cases such as large or length changes. Release
branches are created from trunk and then stabilized by selectively
backporting fixes from trunk to the release branch.

There are literally a hundred different ways to approach this and they all
have pluses and minuses.
