Why not get back to the simpler scheme?

I also don't see the need for three common development branches. Emacs developers are already spread pretty thin with two.

I know of a GNU project that has three such branches: Automake. The branches are called 'master', 'minor', and 'micro', and have roughly the three roles that John suggested. My own impression is that the extra complexity of the three branches discouraged contributors ("which branch should this patch go into?", that sort of thing).

Automake development is currently moribund.
