Isn't release-0-19-fixes branches referred to as "stable?" From the
If you're looking for anonymous subversion access, use the following
commands to grab the latest code:
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythtv
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythplugins
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/myththemes
If you'd like to get the stable 0.19 branch, do this instead:
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/branches/release-0-19-fixes/mythtv
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/branches/release-0-19-fixes/mythplugins
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/branches/release-0-19-fixes/myththemes
