Each branch has its own goals and tracks trunk accordingly. Pd- 
extended tracks trunk with a merge before each release.  The pd-devel  
0.41.4 branch is currently only for the GUI rewrite effort and is  
frozen on 0.41.4. Previous pd-devel branches were for other things.   
Donno about desiredata or other branches.
