OK, so here is our new policy with branches:

Rule 1: All uploads to unstable shall be revisions from the branch
org.debian.monotone, with a tag of the form

Rule 2: All changelog entries from the branch org.debian.monotone shall
contain the keyword "unstable" as the target.  (This implies that
"UNRELEASED" is hereby forbidden; tags suffice to distinguish uploaded

Rule 3: All uploads to testing-proposed-updates or
stable-proposed-updates (this includes backports) shall be revisions
From the branch org.debian.monotone.${Debian-release} specific to the
target release.

Rule 4: The releases "testing", "unstable" and "stable" shall NOT have a
branch.  Rationale: the "unstable" branch is org.debian.monotone;
"testing" and "stable" really mean different things at different times,
so the permanent release keywords are preferred, i.e. etch, lenny,
squeeze, wheezy, etc.

Rule 5: The creation of any future sub-branch is subject to three

5.1: prior approval from the other co-maintainers;

5.2: a rationale (i.e. a reason for not merging immediately into
org.debian.monotone), documented in an email to this list;

5.3: a policy explaining what is accepted into this branch, documented
in an email to this list.

Transition to this policy:

* I have suspended all sub-branches except for
  org.debian.monotone.for-mtn-1.0. If you would like to resurrect any of
  the suspended branches or create new ones, see rule 5.

* I have approved 1bdc98ae702f92234d39cf2238273da5371615ce into branch
  org.debian.monotone and will upload from there.

* The branch org.debian.monotone.for-mtn-1.0 has the following rationale
  and policy:

Rationale: Debian Squeeze being frozen, uploads of monotone 1.0 to
unstable are disallowed.  Packaging for monotone 1.0 will therefore take
place in this sub-branch until Debian Squeeze is released and uploads to
unstable are allowed again.  In the mean time, uploads to experimental
can take place from this branch, at the maintainers' discretion.


- all changelog entries shall contain the keyword "experimental" instead
  of "unstable".

- after Debian Squeeze is released, this branch shall be merged into
  org.debian.monotone and future changelog entries shall contain the
  keyword "unstable", per rule 2.

- the packaging of any version of monotone other than 1.0 is forbidden
  from this branch.

This policy also applies to org.debian.monotone-viz and
org.debian.usher, though no sub-branches of these exist yet.

Ludovic Brenta.
