That is my understanding, although IIRC, the last discussion ended up
with, "We can finalize the new procedure later, once we have moved to
Subversion." Personally, I'd like to see us find a good way to turn
"stable" into an actual release branch of "trunk", with the
appropriate tags to make it easy to keep it up-to-date.
The trunk/stable divergence is really bad for future development.

Until someone gets updated to work with Subversion, no
tests are run. My understanding of the new testing scheme is that
most of the testing will go on the trunk, but that we'll also
periodically test the stable branch (less frequently). No triggers; I
expect perhaps 2 days of the week will test stable, the rest testing
trunk. Or, for those with the resources, test both nightly.
