I see, it's the same on FreeBSD.

The main reason was to keep up with patches, so that they would be
easier to integrate them into the various branches. I could be looking
at this too much with my FreeBSD-glasses on ;) There everything
regarding kernel and base utilities (userland) is first committed to the
HEAD version (similar to ROS trunk), and then after some testing
integrated into the various branches (FreeBSD-7, FreeBSD-8) if
appropriate, from which the releases (7.3, 8.0) are made. But also
there, users run HEAD at their own risk.
