Re: Does one ever branch without merging?

Thanks, that was very informative.

I think I will go the branching route I explained in my original post.
I prefer to think of the math version as a small derivation of the
word version rather than a project all on its own. In the end I will
probably continue branching off for the word version in other language
too.

Just to make sure though, will tagging these branches work in the way
I would expect? I can just tag the math branch for 1.0, and the
spanish branch for 1.2, and so on?

Thanks for the help.
