The branch remains unchanged, but it is still versioned(under version
control). That's why you always checkout the latest revision, no matter
which subdirectory you checkout (and trunk, tags and branches are
essentially subdirectories only too). Unless you give it a -rXXXX
parameter, that is.
And unless there have been commits into the branch, it's identical to
when 3.1 was released (only the revision is different).
