Whatever you want to call it, this is exactly what I am talking  
about.  I didn't realize that you had stopped the mirroring.  I'd  
just add that each time you send the files to the pure-data CVS, you  
increment the version in some fashion.  Then it would be a release.

I don't mean that everyone should mirror the release schedule of Pd- 
extended.  I mean that they should import only stable releases once  
they are ready.  Then Pd-extended will be build with whatever is  
there.  That seems to be the most manageable solution for now.
