It would be good to always have a place for such experimental things.

What's the reason to have two branches EMACS_23 and EMACS_23_1_RC?
The latter will be almost entirely unused. Are you holding it in
reserve in case 23.2 is needed at short notice, eg for a security issue?

Or we sync manually, or someone else volunteers to do it "automatically".

I think that's the biggest issue.

Sorry, but that's an idea I have no enthusiasm for.

I'm happy to sync my own changes manually between CVS branches, or
wait for Bzr (assuming this solves all problems).
