Trunk Frozen for 1.1 Beta

Wednesday July 10th, 2002

The main development trunk was frozen today in preparation for the release of Mozilla 1.1 Beta. Until the trunk is reopened, only approved fixes can be checked in. To get approval for a patch, mail with "[trunk approval]" in the subject. The ideal release date for 1.1 Beta is Wednesday 17th July (though, as usual, this is not set in stone).

Sorry if i'm wrong here, I don't know that much about software development. But here it goes:

Why do they freeze the trunk? Shouldn't they branch it, and then freeze the branch - so that people can keep working on the trunk if they so desire?

Could someone please explain?
