I'm trying to get back in the Swarm support game by building RPMS and Debian packages. Are we still using the Savannah CVS server? I just did "cvs update" in my working directory and the VERSION file still says 2.2.4. That can't be right, can it?
Hmm, I think it is probably possible to apply the same kind of BLT patch to 2.4 and get a working version with Tcl/Tk 8.5. I think Fedora's built of BLT 2.4 just overlooked that case because it requires using the BLT `busy' feature to create the crash. Probably better to stick with BLT 2.4 instead of 3.0 to minimize confusion. Because then there isn't a need to do the extra initialization steps for BLT 3.0, Swarm won't need any modification for that.

As far as the Swarm versioning goes, I haven't touched the VERSION file forever. Let me know if the BLT tweak works for Tcl/Tk 8.5 and I'll bump it to 2.2.5 and tag it. But no point in doing that till you have it working as further changes may be needed (for whatever reason).
