The Minotaur changes page at says that the current work is going on on the trunk. Are the builds on f.m.o of the trunk or are they still the branch?

Could we normalize the date format in the names (and elsewhere) to the ISO standard used everywhere else? In a month's time we could easily run into confusion as to which build is more recent: 04-05-03 or 05-04-03 for example. Not to mention that they'll get sorted in the directory in numerological rather than chronilogical order. By contrast, 2003-04-05 and 2003-05-04 are unambigious. :idea:

I am fairly certain that the current builds were merely posted as a "first glance" courtesy, David. Just a guess here, but when the team is ready to release 0.1 and the build process is automated, the existing standards will probably be followed:

1. The filenames will consist of the application name and the target platform, with no reference to the build date (e.g., minotaur-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz).

2. Each nightly build will be put into a directory called "/nightly/latest-trunk".

3. Each nightly build will also be archived in directories with names in the format "YYYY-MM-DD-tt-trunk", where "tt" == some reference to what time during the day the build was run.

The April 4th build is great! Any idea on when we might see another OS X build?
