If you look, you'll notice there are no changes in the version in the
MagritteGlorp repository.  It's there because I use dependencies and often
put debugging code into Magritte while I'm testing, though I never commit it
like that.  What happens is that my local version gets marked as changed,
and then stamped with a version when committed.

The thing to do is simply merge in the code from the official Magritte
repository.  Get used to doing merges, that's how development is done in

Once you merge in the latest code, and test your own changes, you can commit
to the official repository so your changes can be reviewed.  If people like
your changes, they'll merge them into the main line.  With Magritte... the
main line is whatever line Lukas is working on.
