Hi Robert -
While branches are not helpful for the testing phase in themselves, they
are a great tool for managing various independent changes to a library.
If the xml changes were in a branch they could be easily applied and
removed and re-applied to the trunk at any time.
I'm constantly amazed at the lack of branches in general for boost
development. They are trivial to create and make 'cherry-picking'
changes very easy. Considering how we (as a community) try to use the
trunk as a stable testing ground, the judicious application of branches
seems the only sensible way to develop.
best regards -
