We maintain "two" main branches.  The HEAD of the repository, is where
all development is made.  We refer to it as "current".  The "stable"
branch is where the releases are made from, and contains only
(bug)fixes, no new features.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe they contain the last known successful
compilation of a CVS checkout.

No.  Unfortunately, we don't have a ChangeLog file either which allows
for easy inspection of inclusion of a bug.
