Below is a link to an excellent article on the pros and cons of using
version branching. The author points out that few projects use the
branching capabilities of their version control system, because they
fear the complexity that comes with using branches. It's a valid
concern, but, as he points out, usually well worth it. It's also worth
following the link at the bottom of the article. It leads to a page that
discusses the ways branches can be used, properly, to improve control
over a project.
I think articles like this are useful, because they can help spawn
discussion about ways to improve the development process, hopefully
making development easier, and more fun, for everyone.
