Subject Re: [newdev] Which branch to commit to?
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 13:44:01 GMT
In general you should checkout 'trunk' and fix/add stuff there. The
community will then decide whether the feature/fix should also be
backported to 4.x (very likely) and whether a 3.x releases is also needed
(very unlikely).
