Let me also add that the SVN verion may contain bugs and may even not
compile properly.  They are basically for development only.  If there is
a important fix un unreleased code, please ask and we can post a patch

BTW, I am not sure whether it is stated somewhere elese than in
README.maint: If you build the svn version and post a bug report against
this please make sure that you did a

  svn up

form the top directory followed by

 ./autogen.sh --force

the --force is required due to autoconf caching which might not update
the revision number in the version string.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
