Speaking of, the area should probably be updated to:

1. capture the current state of affairs (2.8 / HEAD on svn and 2.7 on CVS), since it is currently mostly 'in the heads' of the various Zope devs

Good point.

2. translate the CVS FAQ to the svn world (recommendations for how to manage our 'activity branch' pattern in svn
in particular

Note that this is somewhat dependent on the Zope version.

In Zope 3, we make much less use of development branches because:

1. We prefer increments of change to be small.  (This might be
   a useful goal for Zope 2 as well.)

2. We have far more tests:

   a. New code is required to have it's own tests

   b. Tests must always pass on the trunk or on
      release branches.


3.  Up to this point, we haven't had to be careful about managing
    bugfixes across multiple releases.

Sure we have. We've had a release branch for some time. Perhaps I should add:

4. Subversion makes it much easier to manage and
   merge changes, since repository-wide revision numbers
   provide the same capabilities as tags and, thus, make
   tagging mostly unnecessary.

Not sure what you mean by this.
