ahhhhhhhh  :)

ahh I didn't know.

That makes completely sense for me. It would be great to have a specific
clone for tracking SVN and let blessed as the official/working clone.
I would LOVE if blessed could always working and in zync with
ConfigurationOfCog. So that you never need to worry. Always the same
And would like also that blessed is the one used for Hudson. Because, as I
say, that is the way that people expect to build the VM, so we can easily
detect when there is a problem.

Sorry for just giving my thoughts without actually do them. But this is what
I can do at the moment.
