All of that is true of course, but one last word from me about cascade:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-3495 - was the facilitator (in an
airline doing concurrent development of consecutive releases) for a
permanent flip from cascade to canonical trunk based development (with
build+boot+runtime toggles/flags and branch by abstraction). The airline
went multi-repo in Git some years later, and does the GitHub-flow model
(not GitFlow) but it is still the same ... *except for the loss of atomic
