You're thinking branches are tags. They aren't. Branches are just that --
branches. /branches/2.5 contains the latest alpha code in the 2.5 branch
(2.5.2 alpha currently which is just bugfixes and other things backported
from 2.6) and /trunk/ contains new features and such (2.6 alpha).
When 2.3 was still around, new bugfixes and such were committed to
/branches/2.3 and eventually became 2.3.3 while patches for 2.4 which became
2.5 were committed to /trunk/.
It's correct how it is.
