I don't know if we should have a different scheme for tags and
branches. Why not use SERVER_x_y for both?
tags SERVER_2_3_0_beta1 SERVER_2_3_0_final or SERVER_2_3_0_release
also don't forget the branch "master", "default" or "trunk" (it seems
that "default" is the ...default).

address is better than no address.
