Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Repository updates

I follow what has been done to the SVN fine, but I'm still confused about what is intended in the future for the separate trunks:
Will a new trunk be produced for every release ?

If so, do they represent a snapshot which is then left frozen ? If not frozen, what is the intended maintenance: just major bugs fixes ?
If not, should the trunks be "trunk-1.0-stable" etc ? If so, what is the 
intended maintenance:  Cosmetic fixes ? New dissectors ? New capture 
methods ?
Should patches (for whatever maintenance regime is used) by the non-core 
team be produced as patches against the main trunk only, or all trunks - 
i.e. is the maintenance also community-driven or by the core developers 
taking decisions about which patches to apply to the non-main trunk(s) ?
This issue has bubbled around a bit, so I'm slightly hesitant even to 
raise it again, but I'm not convinced any answers were clearly 
communicated when the now-defunct trunk-1.0 was created, but its demise 
certainly reopens it IMHO.

As discussed last week, I've made the following changes to the SVN

  Copied revision 18388 of "/trunk-1.0" to

  Moved "/trunk-1.0", "/branches", and "/tags" to "/historic".

  Copied "/trunk" to "/trunk-0.99.2".

I'm working on the 0.99.2pre1 release right now.

If you need any help visualizing the new repository layout, please
