Basically we need to test each commit from /tag while others proceed
on /trunk. Before we used to lock - modify - TEST [- correct bugs]
unlock. This really slows down the development because TEST is a long
period while development needs to be very frequent. Now with
Subversion we want to profit by concurrent progrommaing and testing.
