I consider this practice unacceptable for work on an allegedly
ready-for-production package. The Zope Development Process document 
When you check in a bug fix, you almost always need to:
* Check in the fix on the current release branch
* Note the fix in the /doc/CHANGES.txt on the current release branch
* Merge the fix to the trunk to be sure its fixed for the next
Only "feature work" should be done primarily on the trunk.
