No.. there are probably 50+ commits (of multiple files) to the CVS
server between minor versions (1.1.x level), depending on the features
achieved and bugs removed.

You can almost count on there being a new version of something every day
or night. You certainly dont need to keep up that often though. Doing so
means bleeding edge, but although it is at that level, we really try not
to have any major issues in the program for any length of time. Im sure
most CVS users will attest to that. Even if there was a problem you
discovered, you can always go back by specifying this on the checkout
command line
cvs -z3 co -D yesterday Scribus
cvs -z3 co -D "12 hours ago" Scribus

Any feature you have seen in a minor revision has crept into CVS one day
after another. If you look into the Changelog you will see dates in
there. Each of those dates lists (usually) all of the changes committed
to the CVS server on that day.

Once you have it built once, building again the next day or the next
week will be the same process. If you can get to IRC we can help you
interactively on any issues that come up in the compile process.
