I think only trunk and the TTM branch are active currently, so I think
there are 2 ways to get that done, either modify both trunk and TTM
branch at the same time, or merge the TTM branch to trunk first. The
former means doing the renaming work twice, the later depends on how
much work is left to be done on the TTM branch. Also, the TTM branch
merge means a lot of changes, I think it would be better to get a
release out first, but then the worst trunk bugs needs to be fixed
first. An alternate solution would be to do the renaming in trunk only
then backport to TTM, at the same time as all the other changes.
Thomas, what do you think ?
