I spend a lot of time working with different branches of some source
tree, so this is something I will try to avoid for U-Boot. There are
clearly marked stable versions (x.y.0), and there are "unstable" or
"development" versions. This is what we have now, and what I intend
to stay with for the foreseeable future.
U-Boot is not such a big project with many independ groups of
developers working on different areas. Even bigger contributions like
support for a new hardware architecture are usually pretty orthogonal
to existing code - or can be made so.
I do not see the need for an "unstable branch". On contrary, I am
convinced that a second branch in the public source tree would only
increase the necessary maintenance efford.

I program, therefore I am.
