It isn't what will be released.  What will be released is what is
_tagged_ as the release, and once it is tagged, there will be a
tarball for it.  If we are in the process of being close to a release,
we also have pretest tarballs.

People who are dealing on a regular base with Emacs' CVS are also told
to read emacs-devel to know what they are dealing with.

And sorry, if you have not noticed by now by the ongoing discussions
on emacs-devel that there is an EMACS_22_BASE branch that is going to
be used for releasing Emacs 22.1, then no amount of additional
handholding is going to help you.

Don't tell me that you are reading the static Emacs CVS instructions
regularly and would have noticed if recently some branch-specific info
would have been put there.
