Actually, I'm not sure we should put it in current at all. It might
be better to leave 2.1 (only) in current until some major changes
have taken place -- maybe even until the release of 2.2 (provided
the time between 2.1 and 2.2 will be a little shorter than that
between 2.0 and 2.1 ;-).
So I think when I upload the next patch, I'll put it in alpha (which
is currently empty), and move the contents of beta to old (to avoid
confusion), and leave current as it is. Would this be reasonable?
(The GPC manual says: "You can download the source code of the
current GNU Pascal release from http://www.gnu-pascal.de/current/"
-- which remains true if we consider alphas not releases, but
I could see a problem for the install.gpc script, though ...
Hmm, if necessary I could create `latest' or so which always
contains the most recent upload (whether snapshot or release).
Or we could move 2.1 from current to, say, `stable', and put the new
alpha in current.
I remember we talked about this some time ago, but I don't remember
the final conclusions (if any). And I'm not familiar with the
current status of the script (does or should it allow the user to
select between alpha/beta/stable/latest, whatever?) ...
