It looks correct to me -- I don't understand what the problem you are 
seeing is. (Anyway, it sounds Github-related.)

What the network tool shows to me is that there is a master branch, and 
the release branches maintenance/1.x.y branch off it at some point in the 
history. For instance, maintenance/1.5.x branches off at July 7th 2010.

Earlier in the history (e.g. around Feb 18th 2009) in the master branch 
there's more branching and merging. These are from topic branches, such 
as what branches/fix_float_format in SVN that got later on merged to 
trunk. Github seems to show these in different colors, but in reality 
they are just a part of the master branch history.

So all in all, it looks correct to me.
