I agree with the general sentiments on both sides of the thread, but  
I am not sure I find this correct:

My understanding from talking to Lukas and Philippe is that anyone  
can post to SqueakSource/Seaside if that is what you mean by the main  
path.  This is to make it easy for the maintainers (anyone who merges  
regularly in the repository) to consider code.  I am free to post  
something bogus to the repository and for it to ultimately cause a  
discussion but no merge.  So I would agree with Philippe that the top  
number has no semantics.  You might have been very fortunate in the  
past the the 'head' revision has always been merged by lukas/philippe/ 
michel/avi/whoever and therefore you can trust it because you trust  
these people.  I have had a head revision in the past but I wouldn't  
trust it; it's just a side effect of the upload before a maintainer  
merges it.  Lukas/Philippe do you see it this way?

What I assume Philippe is saying is that we need some meta  
information in monticello to say 'this' version is the official one.   
I don't know if MCC does this or not.  In the past this has been done  
either via SM releases or more currently via Lukas' installer.  I am  
not sure there is any point to marking individual versions of  
monticello projects official or not.  Increasingly, projects are  
dependent on other projects and therefore they need to be grouped to  
have useful meaning. Is that MCC or does MCC do something else, or a
