So to recap and make sure I understand this correctly:

- Normal development takes place on the trunk.
- Changes required for beta2 (presumably for one of the ports) are made
  on the branch as well.
- Uploads to unstable of d-i packages should come from the beta2 branch
- When a port is considered a viable beta candidate, it will be frozen
  into testing along with i386.  (Will i386 also get a pulse from
  unstable at this time, or will we lose the ability to rebuild all of
  testing from source during this freeze?)
- When the music stops, those ports that have d-i candidates in testing
  will be released as beta2.

Is that right?
