I've been running phpGroupWare (stable or currently 0.9.12) for about 9 
months and it has seemed somewhat this way since then in the development 
branch of cvs.  As there are over 50 developers working in their own 
time on phpgw there is likely to be people working at different paces 
and with different priorities.

0.9.12 is the current stable version - runs fine for me.  The 
0.9.12-branch in cvs has a few bug fixes in which are worth grabbing.  
See for more info.

The cvs development branch may well be broken - it don't use it for that 
reason.  It is constantly under development.  If you rely on it working 
stick with the stable branch which is generally ok.  If not let the 
developers know on and they will try to fix it

If you want to know that is will pretty much be spot on wait for the 
next release, but also try grabbing the stable branch every so often to 
make sure you have the most recent fixes.
