Branching Parenting Strategies

    Since branching is the most complicated of the basic source control activities, I have a question regarding large scale development strategies. What kind of branch management strategies are more commonly used for Web-based live environment projects? 1. Task Branches off the trunk or 2. Integration Branches off the Trunk or a different combination.
    Our development effort includes 20-25 developers, a large CVS repository with multiple projects and tens of thousands of lines of code. Currently we use simple branching and work on both the branch, the head and other branches if necessary. The same code changes go into multiple branches. How do we go about reducing the development effort and restricting developers to make changes only on a certain branch? Or do we change our branch management strategy?
Any input greatly appreciated, Thanks.
