And how should they get that?
By reading the manual which is linked from the same page on Savannah!
I meant of course how they should know that EMACS_22_BASE exists. And
that this is what will be released.

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.

Thanks, but I am not sure I understand the difference.

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.

Are you sure you are not writing about your problem, not mine? I found nothing interesting from the point of the information matter I asked about here.
