SVN FPC tag content?

Bo Berglund
I am wondering if the FPC release tag for 3.0.0 is ever updated with
the bugfixes or if it is static.
I.e. if I want to get the bugfixes into my FPC do I have to update to
a new tag then?
Or is it OK just to make a svn up in the source dir?

It seems to be static, otherwise branches/fixes_3_0 will be useless.

As far as I'm concerned, tags should *never* move, otherwise, what's the
point of tagging a commit. That should apply to SubVersion and Git
repos. If you want to track minor bug fixes after a release, which to
that release's bug-fix branch... regarding FPC that is normally named
"<fpcver>_fixes".

I hade a look here:
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/branches/fixes_3_0/
there are sources

And here:
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/tags/release_3_0_0/
same here

So there seems not to be any release_3_0_1 or similar.

Is the accepted convention to check out the branches/fixes_3_0/ and
regularly svn up on it and then make?

trunk/ seems to be work in progress and might be unstable, right?

That is the 3.0 series branch from which releases are branched.

That is the 3.0(.0) release.

The fixes_3_0 has as moving version "3.0.1" till 3.0.2 is released, and
after it will be 3.0.3 and so on.

Yes. Though the activity is not continous. It has had quite some updates in
the last few days though.

Well, lately that instability is relative, it is generally usable,
but fixes_3_0 is a bit more conservative with respect to breaking
interfaces and compatibility.
