No, the beta2 will be tagged from trunk (and the tag made compilable, nobody 
besides Dirk (I think) may commit there). Likewise, just before after the 
release, 4.2 will be branched off of trunk, subsequent releases (4.2.0, 4.2.1, 
...) will be tagged from that branch. Trunk is open for feature commits again 

In short: committing to trunk is enough. :)
