It's not based on 8.2.0, but neither is it in "sync" with trunk.  It is 
a copy of trunk from r27271.  You may indeed find that there are a 
number of bug fixes or feature additions which are present in trunk at HEAD 
which are not present in the #3987 branch.

If you want everything from trunk at HEAD and the #3987 branch, then you 
may now be happy you did all that stuff with git.  Merge the #3987 
branch into trunk at HEAD and you'll get everything from trunk at HEAD and 
everything from the branch (that's tautological, sorry, I hope you know 
what I mean).

If you're not sure what to do with git, then here's what to do with svn:

    cd path/to/Twisted/trunk
    svn merge $EXPRESSIVE at 27272 EXPRESSIVE at HEAD
    svn merge $HIGHLEVEL at 27275 $HIGHLEVEL at HEAD

Or using Combinator:

    chbranch Twisted expressive-http-client-886-4
    unbranch Twisted
    chbranch Twisted high-level-web-client-3987
    unbranch Twisted --force
