Yes, but try to make the next releases more trouble-free i.e. branch CVS when 
it is ready to realase and continue development on HEAD (just as Richard 
suggested on his last message). IMHO, that boring and annoying "method" of 
having only HEAD and then "freezing" everything just to release a new version 
is what make people which manage CVS-based projects (yeah, I'm talking with 
you Gerard :)) wonder why releases are necessary. Releases _are_ necessary, 
to make users and even editors know that, at that point, the book was optimal 
for consumption.

And, of course, releases make us proud of ourselves when we reach, let's say, 
LFS 10.0 :)
