so to summarize:
"test" packages are considered to be stable releases.
"RC" (release candidate) packages are considered to be CVS-snapshots.

i guess i am mixing something up, since i would have a guessed to be the
other way around. according http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Release_candidate
i would have seen "test" to be "beta", and "RC" to be "gamma"

generally it would be good to have this explained somewhere (e.g. on
puredata.info or as a readme on autobuild.puredata.info)

the idea to retrieve the version number fully automated is a good one.
