So now, after 3.4 is branched from trunk in svn, you want *all* changes to
trunk backported to 3.4, with two other people reviewing each?

It could be. It would make more sense that the problem is my lack of
understanding of revision control systems, and not just an apparent need
to make everything as much work as possible. When the most unstable
code in this project, trunk, has been rock solid reliable since I started
running it in April.

I've used several revision control systems. I've never maintained one
myself, really. My previous related comment was just to allow, again, for
the possibility that I missed something (a technical reason a svn branch
couldn't be named "3.4.1" instead of "3.4"). Is there any particular
aspect of RCS or release engineering that you would like me to read up on?
