No, this is just gnome-core/applets.  gnome-libs HEAD is for 2.0
gnome-libs-1-0 branch is what is used for the stable gnome-libs, and will
be used for 1.4 as well.  AFAIK.

That's ok.  If your change is for 1.4 only then only commit it to HEAD.
Don't really worry much about 1.2 as 1.4 is very close.

I don't think it's even worth it to do ANYTHING on the (core|applets)-1-2
branch unless it is a critical bugfix.
