Eric is in the rainforest and JB is MIA... so I'll take a stab at it and if I'm wrong, I'm sure I'll hear about it later :)

The code in 1.4 is intended to be released next, and it is currently in a passing state (but... my git-fu is poor). As far as workflow goes, all development should go on master and then be merged to the 1.4 branch once sanctioned. and really... ALL master code should be merged to 1.4--we shouldn't be that far ahead of ourselves.

I don't think the 1.9 branch is meant to stay, just to manage the chaos currently going on with ruby-core's rubygems vs ours. Once everything is reconciled, I think that branch should go away and all changes made to ruby-core's rubygems should be immediately rolled out without reservation. Otherwise it gets to be too much. Don't bother merging to it. We should be pushing from our release branch to ruby-core's svn as-is.
