Because some VCSes can't cope with duplicate branch names, Fossil
collapses such names down on export using the same timestamp based
arbitration logic, so that only the branch with the newest checkin gets
the branch name in the export.

All of the above is true of tags in general, not just branches.

<h2 id="voice">The Authors' Voice</h2>

Above, "we" refers to
[/blame?udc=1&w=on&checkin=trunk&filename=www%2Fbranching.wiki|the
historical authors of this file]. It is our collective voice and
opinions above. As in all walks of life, this is not the only possible
philosophy, but it is our duty and pleasure in this document to present
our philosophy to you. You are of course free to adopt or reject as much
of it as you like. Fossil supports many styles, not just those this
document's authors prefer. This should go without saying, but we get
push-back from people who apparently believe all documents on all web
pages should either support their beliefs, or they are factually wrong.
Someone is [https://www.xkcd.com/386/|always wrong on the Internet],
somewhere.  Please don't hold that against us.
