Yikes, I think you found a bug in our docs! I agree, that example
makes no sense at all. I just confirmed this with our release manager,
and he concurs that it's nonsense. It seems to imply that we'd soon be
creating our 1.2.x branch by copying the 1.1.2 tag, rather than /trunk!

But that's absurd. All new features are developed on trunk. And we
always copy /trunk to /branches/release-branch. That's how we created
/branches/1.0.x, /branches/1.1.x, and that's how we'll create
/branches/1.2.x soon.

Thanks for finding this, we'll fix.
