I have taken a CVS snapshot this early morning/night from 
validator-0_7-branch, just right after the last CVS messages reached me 
by mail, you said per mail, that all is done and the website was 
updated. So, I thought, no more files will be changed concerning 0.7.4.
As I watched my mail this morning, 2 CVS mails reached me documenting 
changes to validator-0_7_4-release.
So I did update my 3 validator checkouts: validator (HEAD), 
validator-0_7-branch and validator-0_7_4-release.
As far as I remember, while I was checking out this noon, I watched the 
following: validator-0_7-branch didn't change, validator-0_7_4-release 
changed, validator (HEAD) changed.

Because validator-0_7-branch, which I have taken for packaging this 
early morning/night didn't change, I have come to the conclusion, that 
sticking to the branch will be the best, because -release and HEAD 
could be merged hours later and the branch is the first of all, which 
is up-to-date.
