Question on use of Task Branches

I am new to CVS. I would really appreciate suggestions. I am researching the use of task branches.

My definition of a task: Every developer gets a set of work to do and is divided up in several small tasks.

What are the pros and cons of implementing individual task branches? Is it better to use it or stay away from it?

From what I know:


·       Allows developers to checkout and commit their own work without affecting anyone.

·       They can review their own changes over time before they decide to merge it to the trunk.

·       Re-viewers can check out the individual task branch.


·       Can clutter up the repository with many tags and branches.
