+1 on the concept of bolding the text. -1 on the name. There is no such thing as FOP 1.0DR1. It is a naming convention only, and IMO, not a good one. > BTW, IIRC it's been discussed on the list (ad nauseam) that the > official "tag" name is HEAD, but frankly, I don't remember why so many > terms appear to be synonymous.

This is partly because the hope has *always* been that we are just around the corner from having only one development line again. Thank you for volunteering :-) I'll address the naming issue in my response to your subsequent post. Victor Mote
