Actually, we have a branch for every defect or new feature. We usually
have teams working on either of these and a branch is the only way they
can share their changes without breaking the trunk or otherwise
de-stabilizing it. If you have a small team, you can probably get away
with working directly on the trunk, but larger teams usually need to use

To answer the original question, we have a closed-branches directory
where branches are moved when development work is done on them. So at
any given time, you can see which branches are open by looking in the
branches directory.
