I'm planning on a more on-going merge to -stable.  Where
as with the _RELEASE branches it was basically rsync on
top of the old _RELEASE tree right before release time.
The -stable tree will most like be updated weekly (depending
on how hard people work).

Sounds feasible.  What about this type of update schedule?

* -unstable Same schedule as wel have for the svn updates
* -test Update unpacked once per day.
* -unstable Update once per week.
