I think that this is the start of the thread that Miles is referring to.

A very relevant quote by Tom:

It may be helpful not to think of a category as being divided first
into branches, then into versions, but instead as a category as being
the name of a two dimensional space:  BRANCH x VERSION

It's just a convention - one of two possible - that branch labels are
written to the left of version ids.
