What's the retional behind the different SaaS versions and the corresponding typical development activites?

I'd like to understand how this workflows works in order to see how and where to contribute, or with which version to fire up play-around-servers. On github * I see, that generally the earlier the version the "farer" behind ageinst master. That's allright.

But what's the point of the smaler but differing amounts of "aheads"?

Could you probably explain in analogy to ubuntu LTS versions and other commonly used versioning practices.

This gave part of the answer:






But htis then raised new questions: 


Why are there differences?

Saas branches are the used by the saas offer they are opensourced with the objective to test the "future" stable features already tested by saas offer of OpenERP.

Your contribution should be directed to trunk the future "unestable" branch but the one which have active development.

saas-X are not supported by any commercial / comunitary service but I think you can post bugs related to them to help a quicker future "stable" version.

saas-x are like "beta" version (before) release of Ubuntu.

It seems furthermore, that upstream, they are in sync. (Except of 6.1 maybe because its way too old/different). Regards & Saludos :)
