Sure, before I do so, let me make sure I am on the same page as you.

Stable releases get a number (e.g. 5.1.1)
Testing (BRANCH) never gets a number and is "known" in BZ as TESTING
Unstable (TRUNK) never gets a number and is "known" in BZ as SVN

We then "track" bugs for all three tiers this way. Bugs in TESTING can 
be closed and patches uploaded to TESTING and SVN for the commit.  if a 
bug is for a named STABLE version number, we can then upload the patch 
to all three if necessary.

Is that right, or did I get my directions reversed?  Still learning this 
whole 3-tier deal.
