Well maybe I am not understanding the term...I'm looking at Jurgen's
message from 8/22

I thought that as of that day, at whatever revision level that was, the tag
should have been moved. It wasn't, so now we are at a different revision
level in trunk, but....?

Mostly the reason I ask is that some builds via buildbot are not working
given the current SNAPSHOT tag -- old.

Really, I am mostly asking became of how the buildbots are setup. I think
we should standardize on a process and definition of SNAPSHOT.
