Some things you might find useful in your quest:

"Branching Patterns for Parallel Software Development"
"Software Release Methodology" [ISBN 0136365647]

The latter source goes over some of the basic of source control management
such as: recommended polocies for branching, braching vs productivity,
product vs project tagging.  However, this is just one chapter out of the
book, so don't expect too deep a discussion here.
