The reason I chose to use trunk is to not have to backport all the

That includes : removal of copyright notice and various changes to

Since these changes do not critically affect mkamsboot, there's no
reason to tag mkamsboot from a branch.
And of course I tested mkamsboot myself before releasing it.

Note that the binaries I built are already available on
(even if the server still says 403)

mkamsboot v1.1 really is what I built off this particular revision,
with APPVERSION defined to 1.1; a user who would build mkamsboot from
this checkout would read mkamsboot vrXXXXX, because it's not what I

If we really need binaries built from trunk to be versioned, there are
other possibilities than using branches.

We won't keep a branch opened forever for future mkamsboot releases,
all the code committed to trunk will be tested and reviewed (by me at

Please remove the mkamsboot tag you made from branch and re tag
