Tags are supposed to be unchanged. We very rarely change things on tags; 
in fact only just before release, and we're not supposed to change 
what's in a tag after the release (I cheated a tiny by modifying 
versions.cfg recently, but you should ignore that :).

Branches are there so we can continue to develop on the trunk while 
still being able to do bugfix releases.

Branches are initially created from tags, when needed. You can change a 
branch after the release, but typically only for the purpose of bugfixes.

Christian Theune created a 0.12 branch for you. Could you merge the 
'testsetup-less' branch into that? (as this is what I understand should 
be done).
