This was the single most important point why I refrained to add the boinc-
server stuff to the master or experimental branch. Upstream has no single 
point in their repository where both the client and the server are stable and 
tested. For example, the server components of some tagged client versions may 
be totally broken.
To have a single .orig.tar.gz tarball to use for the client and the server 
will probably require adding lots of patches from upstream's trunk to keep the 
server in shape.
