Definitely, I'm not going to go with my own repo.

Yes, this is exactly how I'd like to merge too.

That's right.

I'll try to ask this way:

I've been disconnected from the SVN changes in fdocore/trunk and
fdordbms/trunk for a ~1 month.

If I update my working copies and continue building PostGIS FDO
against current fdocore/trunk, and finally merge with fdocore/trunk and
fdordbms/trunk, which version of Autodesk Map 3D and MapGuide
can I target with my PostGIS FDO?

This question is important because as far as I know, fdocore has been
frozen at some point, for nearest release.

Will it be possible to use the PostGIS FDO with Map 3D Hammerhead ?
