And it would be even nicer if the package maintainers would give a hint
that the package is based on a snapshot or pre-release. Some time ago
(november 2007) I accidentally installed Subversion 1.5.0 from the
OpenSUSE build service to a customer's production server without
checking on the Subversion mailing list before if 1.5.0 already had been
officially released. It is still running without any problems on the
server but it would have nice if there had been any information about
the package being based on a pre-pre-alpha version.
