It is undergoing major schema changes, but it doesn't really matter since the 
schema is self-updating.

That is the basic reasonning behind the feature-freeze.  We want to get a 
release out the door.  The idea is to release a 1.0 that doesn't have many 
new features, but that is much easier to install.  Unfortunately, it does 
take time.

The naming scheme of the auth server is unlikely to follow the gateway.  I 
think we are likely to use the major_features.minor_features.small_fixes 
naming convention.

Note that as soom as pascal finishes his installer and that networks have been 
abstractes, it will be worth doing 0.x.y releases.  That should happen very 

There will not be a released developpement branch.
