Yes, the code will be forked.  I'm not sure of the exact date but it
should be obvious when it happens.

You should keep two copied, one just checked out in the normal way and
one checked out as

cvs co -t KDE_3_2_BRANCH kdesdk

any bugfixes should go into the branch and normal version but anything
at all new should only go into the normal version.

You can do clever things with the -j tag to merge changes made in
other branches.
