Line 1: Line 1:
/!\ NOTE: checkouts and repositories do not exist yet In the simplest of terms, a branch is the record of all the commits that have been done. Every [:WorkingTree:working tree] has a branch, but it may be in a different location. The actual revisions produced by the commits are stored in a repository, which is sometimes shared with other branches.
Line 3: Line 3:
In the simplest of terms, a branch is the information stored along with a [:WorkingTree:working tree] that gives you access to revision control. One of the most important pieces of a branch is the record of all of the previous [:Revision:revisions] that the working tree has ever had. A frequent activity done by users within the working tree of a branch is to [:Merge:merge] another branch. In this way users can share changes between two branches -- even if the branch is run by someone else.

 This is misleading, because branches do not need working trees, and several checkouts may refer to a single branch. -AaronBentley

Another frequent activity done by users within the working tree of a branch is to [:Merge:merge] another branch. In this way users can share changes between two branches -- even if the branch is run by someone else.

Sometimes a branch, named a [:StandaloneBranch:standalone branch] will directly store its own [:Revision:revisions]. At other times, such as when a branch is a [:Checkout:checkout] or is a part of a [:Repository:repository], the revisions are stored elsewhere.
Bazaar's default behavior is to put the repository, branch, and working tree all in the same place. This combination is called a "standalone tree". If there is no tree, it is called a "[:StandaloneBranch:standalone branch]". If the repository is shared with other branches, it is called a "[:RepositoryBranch:repository branch]". A working tree in a different location from its branch is called a "checkout".
