Thank you Niclas,
How do I get different revisions?
Supppose if I want to check out stable but bit older revision through my
svn client, what should I do?
Coz every time I do a check out old problem is going but some new issues
are coming up.
And btw may I know which is the stable revision of main branch?
I got to study the OPENIM project, as it is based on avalon merlin I am
digging this for the last few days.. with slow, progress.

Magic is still lacking in the documentation area, but the primary
docs are at http://www.dpml.net/central/products/magic/index.html
Basically what we are doing is to harness the power of Ant 1.6 and 1.7
features, which allows you to all the stuff we do with Ant.
Technically speaking, it is all Ant extensions, but since the extent is
massive, it is more like a new product which uses Ant as a bootstrapper
large library of well-tested code.
The main point is found in Index.java, which establishes a lot of
reading the index.xml which describes the project's organization.
To make things even more complicated, the recent change to Magic, we now
Transit to load up Magic, both within the Ant's execution space. This is
allow us to evolve Magic, and have those evolutions automatically
so that the user don't need to re-install whenever we release an
