don't hold off committing patches for these reasons, put them in and let other
people fix the problems with their own OS's.

Please, don't drop the cvs mail messages, it's important to the whole
mechanism that people actually see when things get done. In future I'd
like to delay getting cvs access until Brian adds you to the mailing list.
You should *NOT* be able to commit code without those mail messages getting
to the rest of us.

I agree that the version should say 1.1-dev. We also need to add Id lines to
all the files so that RCS version numbering is visible in them. I'd leave
the SERVER_VERSION string at 1.1-dev until such time as we move into
a beta cycle and date stamp snapshots as I mentioned in previous mail (did
people get that, never saw any folloups).

We should release a snapshot every fortnight (roughly under our discression).
There also needs to be a checked out copy for lazy bastards like Andy :-)

We're getting there though.
