Hm, yes, dangerous is what I expected.
Do you really think we should base our packaging of newer TeXLive on SVN
I mean, once lenny is released, we want to upload that to unstable *and*
let it migrate to testing. Because of the ongoing license checks, we
would have to really track the latest trunk: Otherwise we'd have to
resort to blacklisting again, and we could as well base our packaging on
the released TL 2008.
