- People who use the scripts I'm writing (me, a few colleagues) as i'd
use this term in an option name.
- People who maintain the scripts. (me)
i.e. Developers, though it'd be handy to have a all-inclusive term
non-technical could use in conversation with us once they'd learned

Yea, actually --root is what I'd been using, though I neglected to put
it in my list. I'm not too keen on it because it's not specific
enough. The root of what? The project, the repository, the current

Of these, I think base or foundation has appeal. Top not so much for
the same reason as root. (Though it's appealingly short.)

Where in the case of trunk, this looks a little different:

"version path". Yea, we've been calling projects (see diagram)

They are copies, but so are lots of other things. I though of "clones"
last night, but that misses this point that they can (and do) change.
Unless they are tags. Usually.

I like variant.
I've been using "stream", while I wait for your suggestions to come
in, though using that term is looking more like unfortunate
overloading . Still, it doesn't appear to be used *within* the
Subversion community, so the collision is not so bad.
I like "variant" and "base"; even "copy". The perverse devil on my
left shoulder keeps trying to get me to use "furcate", but I don't
think that's going to fly.
