I don't know.

I think the latest version of Installer and related was installed by installing LPF, but I believe then you would then have the latest MC1.5/1.6 too.
Trunk seems to have started with ancient Installer and MC.

Those that are working on the package would obviously then want to commit to the repo to keep the repo up to date.
