That's what I meant. If trunk or some "release candidate" branch is
stable enough to make a release, then tag that specific revision (a
snapshot of a specific point in time). Now make a release based on
that tag (and specific revision).  Now that release is done and dusted
- never to be touched again. The same should be said about the tag.

If changes need to be made, a new branch should be created, revisions
merged and patches applied. When it's tested and ready, tag it and
create a new point release. Isn't this how 99% of the software
projects out there work?
