Not that my opinion will be the one that counts, but my experience shows
that one shouldn't encourage users that don't know how to get and
compile an application from cvs to use it. Whenever there were bleeding
edge packages available the ratio of useful messages on the mailing list
decreased till it was lost in the noise.
Admitted, I do like to compile my own stuff, and with mythtv I do have
to, since the default settings don't work on my cpu, but I don't think
it's advisable to make cvs packages available for a project were there
is a such a dynamic development in progress as with mythtv/ivtv.
