A new version of the Branching guidance has been released (III), containing very good stuff on how to do branching. It includes labs, sketches and how-to’s.

For most purposes the basic branch plan is more than enough.  I often also see it with only Main and Feature branches, typical for “one of a kind”-type of systems.
