    "the current development version" is not a concept for git.  No
    repository is special as far as git is concerned.  The "current
    development version" is a social, not a technical concept.  For example,
    the git maintainer was off-line unexpectedly for some months recently.
    Somebody else took over seamlessly by collecting, arranging and
    coordinating patches on the git list into _his_ repository.

With CVS, people can get the current version of every program on
savannah in a uniform way.  What you say seems to imply that that is
not possible with git.  That seems like a big step backwards.

Within a community of people that work together, it won't be a
problem.  They will know to look THERE instead of HERE.  But users in
general can't be expected to check for that sort of thing before they
get the current development Emacs.
