Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Re: Adding features during service releases and how/when to tag and branch source code ....

In Buckminster we naturally use Buckminster RMAP files ;-) to control what gets picked/built, and we do tagging and lazy branching of individual projects. 
Trunk is what moves forward. Occasionally a branch is used. When there is a need to review before committing to trunk we use patches (this also works well for non committers). If there is not too many people working on the same parts of the code it seems like too much overhead to have a branch per bug.
