The 2.0 alpha was the CVS HEAD branch.  Once 2.0Beta1 was 
released 2.0 and the CVS Head branch split so as to 
continue development without jepodizing the stability of a 
soon to be released 2.0.  Make sense?

At this point the HEAD branch is continuing to evolve and 
the 2.0 is frozen for the moment except for bug fixes.

Hope this helps,
