What is the normal procedure of moving from 'trunk' to 'release' ? Is it
merely adding the files to the release branch or is there a better
subversion technique ( I guess I should already know this ) ? Is the
release branch '' ?

The vacpp failures do not trace the error call stack any further than
the use of function.types by TTI. I also notice that function.types has
failures for vacpp, so I expect it is related. So I think I should mark
them in status/explicit-failures-markup.xml. Unfortunately I don't have
a computer running AIX to test this out.

I did try a syntax notation update for those VC9 failures in the test
results, which simply affects the structures I created for the tests,
and not the TTI code itself. It is in revision 84337 on the trunk, but
none of those VC9 tests have cycled to use that revision yet. In my own
tests for VC9 I am not seeing the failures in any situation.

Once I move to release do I assume that any coding changes are forbidden
but that documentation changes are allowed ?

Thanks very much for your help.
