Non Sequitur. Do you know what the letters CVS mean? They mean CONCURRENT
VERSIONING SYSTEM. Where are the concurrent versions in there, if the only
branch that is there is Hans-approved Miller-approved MAIN ?

Most CVS branches ever made are not meant to be merged back in. (Which CVS
repositories have you used apart from CVS's ?)
However, what's different from most branches, is that devel_0_39 and
desiredata are full of changes that would never be merged into the core
anyway, but it's not something that you are willing to understand.

So, why did they open up their own repository? There's an explanation
missing in the reasoning here. Why is the situation of gaim-vv
particularly similar to the one of DesireData? Were there political issues
over shared resources like access control lists?
