Not so different. Changing tree names is actually a pain in the butt, so
I think 3.0-testing is actually OK. We will then fork 3.0 from it when
we're ready for a release (and tag it 3.0.0), and 3.0-testing will be
strictly bug fixes only. 

We're not intending to do any checkins to -unstable until 3.0 is
released. In fact, we might start off soft linking the -unstable repo to

I'd have rather hoped stuff like this would have already been discussed
and posted :-(

Anyhow, we can try and find time to discuss this at OLS with both you
and Jimi, Hollis et al.
