Under Rene's scheme there are two trunk's - the development trunk and
the release trunk. Several people commented that they liked the
tradition "trunk" name rather than the "next" name I proposed. I agreed
with them, as I was finding the "next" name awkward.

Do you have a name you would find less confusing?
