what is a good term to use for concepts like branch, tag, timestamp,
revision, trunk? Assume you have a list of names identifying a mix of
such things - what would you like to use as the type of that list? ("It
is a list of ....")

(The current term for the entire list in Buckminster is "branchTagPath").

Would it bother you if they are referred to as "branches" even if some
of them are more of a "snapshot" nature?

Is "view" or "revisions" a good term?

A blessed 'whatchemmicallit' is usually referred to as "baseline" - is a
non-blessed simply a "line", or is the term "baseline" applicable in the
build case?

Right now I am in favor of "baseline", and can imagine syntax like this:

repositories {
svn repository helios3.5 {
baselines main, "Platform-3.5.x", /release3;
// other settings...
// additional repositories
