yes, but when there are more and more branches every developer will have 
it's own one and it's much more difficult for new one to join (where?) ...

well, if more people are working on the same then it's also clear that 
sometimes there are clashes ... and it's also logical that Thomas 
doesn't take the latest cvs and maintains a more "stable" version for 
his product ...

of course it's not a big change and it's easy because you don't have to 
communicate ... and in the end you will give up desiredata and thomas 
will give up devel because of the lack of man power ...
(I know, for me as a outsider it's easy to say that ... ;)

please wait at least some days till everyone is calmed down and you can 
speak about the actual problems before you make such a work ...

The whole situation is a little bit similar to the current political 
situation here in austria:
On 1. October there were elections and someone has to form a coalition, 
but till now the parties didn't discuss the actual problems, they were 
only angry against each other and said that they don't want to speak 
with the other one ... nobody wants to make a compromise ... :=)
