Hi Charles,

Caution: there are branches and tags (management the same way
by versioning systems).

The above mentionned 'numeric' are tags. I still wonder if I'll
continue to use tags: Testing "tags" (ie 2.0.2-pre1) are somewhere
managed through tarballs (as for stable), and we don't need
this much for Development... I think I'll so simply remove the
above mentionned tags not to pollute.

Available branches are: Development, Testing, Stable.

Note that the above was setup a bit in the hurry, that's
why I tried the tags too.

hope to have answered your question.
