well, lurker here, or someone who doesnt post often on this boards but i have to say that it really annoyed me too.
I am neither a fanboi, or someone who has never used "open source" or generally free software that is developed via the internet and i am also using SVN at work for our inhouse projects.
Anyway, i had my fair share of trouble with finding out what is up with tinytip as well, it completely stopped working at one point and that pretty much had me spent quite some time trying to fix the problems.
Isn't there a stable tag for releasing mods that could help people like me to avoid such problems? Whenever i use Open Source software i am given the choice to download a development and a stable version, a feature that imho ACE should adapt if there has been a paradigm shift regarding to WAU or something along the lines.
