Line 1: Line 1:
A branch is the ordered collection of [:Revision:revision]s. for a [:WorkingTree:working tree]. Two different types of branches are planned for Bazaar-NG -- [:StandaloneBranch:standalone branches] and [:RepositoryBranch:repository branches]. In the simplist of terms, a branch is the place that [:Revision:revisions]s go to when [:Commit:commit] is run. The revisions stored in a branch are ordered according to their introduction.
Line 3: Line 3:
In the case of standalone branches, the working tree is present for the user to work on. In the case of repository branches, the working tree is disassociated and can be represented as a [:Checkout:checkout] and merged to and from. [:StandaloneBranch:Standalone branches] are clearly a branch in every sense of the word as the full history for a branch is present. A [:RepositoryBranch:Repository branches] also qualifies as a branch, even though the tree does not have an integrated working tree.

A [:Checkout:checkout], on the other hand, is technically not a branch because it does not contain all of the ordered revisions that make a branch a branch.
