cupcake-release is the branch that is used to build devices, whereas
cupcake is the branch that is used to build the SDK (we separate them
for a variety of reasons). Until 1.5r2 (mid-May) they were identical
for all practical purposes, so the distinction (which had existed on
our internal servers for a long time) didn't get reflected on the
outside, but since mid-May they've been drifting a bit and we decided
to reflect the differences on the outside.

The current state of cupcake-release is a loose match for the CRC01
release that is being deployed to some consumer devices.

Admittedly, we still need to do a better job at matching the various
forms of the version numbers, especially for the device builds.

if there a graph or diagram showing which depicts the usage of these branches as they are pushed to open source will be helpful

That's part of the "better job" I need to do.

Hi,

Would this branch - when compiled - work on the HTC Magic device ?

TIA

There's no process at this point to make the open-source tree work on
an HTC magic. My priority in that area is to focus on HTC dream
hardware first (i.e. the ADP1).

You can try gitx or git log --graph to make a graph.
