Re: Best way to create new version

Ideally, the trunk should be thought of as being "version x.y" rather it
should be thought of as "bleeding edge". Versioned releases should go
in tags, and updates to those releases should go in branches. Thus tags
are static and branches (at least the legacy branches) would get
bugfixes and updates.
