Yep, pretty much. For a product you probably also want to stick with a
certain tested svn version of LinuxBIOS (not trunk, which is a moving target).

(This doesn't mean trunk is unstable. Any breakage is considered a no-no
and is a bug; all commits should keep trunk in a building/working state.
But using a specific svn version is still a bit safer)

HTH, Uwe.
