But the biggest question is.. why doesn't the PM system work, it's the only thing stopping me from using 2.2 in a real environment :D

What I don't get is that this is a much more functional version of the source than the CVS is. I don't see why they don't just use this source.

What wrongf with the PM system, work fine to me, maybe i fixed it (will it can be a called fix, tweaked ;) )

This board has some thing from the CVS, but is it there live test bed. It has feature and addition, somethime subtration. That they are currently playing with. It is common proactice to release things in the CVS once it is finished. What codes they add to this site one day, may not e there the other day.

I think i posted before on why somethings where not in the CVS, mainly the groups thing... And of cause i would affect people more, if there changed things every other day in the CVS.

Hope there isn't any great database changes.

they should still let us download the dev board source, even if its seperate from the CVS. That way we can see how to fix our source and they don't have to worry about stupid support questions.

The whole point is the development board(s) can often be less stable than the code in CVS (at least earlier in the development process) as things are tried out.

Anyone using CVS is expected to have enough knowledge of PHP and mySQL to fix any problems they encounter themselves anyway. If people are unable or unwilling to do this, then it's best to leave it until the Beta and RC versions come out.
