I think this is a very good idea - we'd got positively
'cathedral' like - thansk for stirring it up Andrew :-).

Just one suggestion - rather than bumping the release
rev number each week do you think we should attach a
date in YYYYMMDD style format to the version string ?

That way people will know these versions haven't gone
through *any* QA (essentially) and when we start getting
close to "stable" we can go back to the version number

Let me know what you think,



Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
