By "core CVS development tree", do you mean what's in CVS at
:pserver:address@hidden:/home2/cvsroot?  If so, that code is
built every night on a bunch of different platforms and the sanity tests
run.  It works just fine -- what problems did you have compiling it?

The makefiles are corrupt (at least on the Linux box I tried it on). It doesn't even start compiling. There's also a missing variable (client_active) referenced in 4 or 5 places in the code.

As for "latest patches", there are boat-loads of patches running around
loose, most of them ill-conceived and poorly implemented; naturally,
they've not been incorporated into the official release.  (Of course,
there are a few gems that haven't been incorporated, either; separating
the wheat from the chaff is a difficult and time-consuming process and
we don't have a paid development staff, you know.)

'edit -c' has been around for almost 2 years... The core code looks pretty stagnant if it's that far behind. You don't need paid development staff - I've worked on many projects that didn't have such staff.


Don't click on this sig - a cyberwoozle will eat your underwear.
