But if it's called branches, then people will be tempted to fix bugs directly in it etc.

I agree that a tag that gets updated is a bit unusual (although, well, we do that for releases
before the release is done), however a "use but don't modify" branch is unusual too...


might be an idea (no "trunk" in there so less confusion with trunk/kdesupport indeed)
but then we would lose the "kdesupport for 4.1" once kde-4.2 comes out.
This is why I liked kdesupport-for-4.1, because we can have kdesupport-for-4.2 in parallel.
