I don't know about the other developers, but with a lot of my changes,
I run future-CVS on my production system. My production systems are
running whatever is in my CVS tree at the time and I try to "cvs update"
them weekly to current CVS. So, if I'm working on a patch in my
tree, I'm usually running it on my production system. For big
changes such as the recent "ALL" commercial flagging method and the
JobQueue, I ran those for weeks on my production setup before I
committed them to CVS.
Developers like to keep their own systems working so Myth CVS stays
pretty stable. :)
