Re: CMake 1.8.1-1 ready

I am not sure I understand what test has to do with prev and curr.
The way I look at prev and curr is that if someone upgrades to the
current cmake, but there is a compatibility problem with their project,
then can go back to prev.   Unless I am missing something if I leave
it the way it is, then prev will be 1.3.22 based which should work with
1.5.x.   And curr will be 1.5.x based, and be the most recent version
of cmake.

What are you suggesting I change my setup.hint to?

prev: 1.6.7-2
curr: 1.8.1-1

Then delete 1.6.7-1?
