The nice thing with MC is "that every developer is on his/her own
branch" so to speak. This is a common trait of distributed SCMs typically.

In practice it means that there is no special TRUNK - instead projects
tend to appoint one or a few people the attribute of being TRUNKs :)

For example, in Gjallar I am TRUNK. Everyone else can make any snapshots
they like - either I integrate them or I reject them, simple as that.
The nice thing is that people don't need to worry so much of making
perfect snapshots. If someone wants the latest stable in Gjallar they
just pick the latest gk-snapshot.

regards, Göran
