The "opensource-drop" branch at:


is just my guinea pig branch for testing the automated process. This
automated process will soon be applied to all published branches.

The current process is manual and executed by Soft Linden.

With continuous branches, I mean that instead of having maint-render-4,
maint-render-5, maint-render-6 etc... we will simply have
"maint-render". The numbered branches are an artifact of the way we use
subversion and are probably not very useful for external browsing.

The zipped/tarred archives will continue, except that those will also be
published automatically instead of being packed and uploaded by hand.

That's all - nothing really changes...
