Thank you Malex, it works fine.
I'm afraid I did'nt really understand about the "dummy" version: do you 
mean you won't make some repositories for 1.3.4cvs?
That could be great if we could have in parallel, the and the 
1.3.4cvs in order to test it.
I know I can make the job by myself, but I know I won't.
I understand it's many work for you, so maybe you could do it once a 
month or something like that.

Thanks for all
