I currently see three reasons why this hasn't happened:

1) Why can't you tell your engineers to checkout a specific revision of
the trunk (or provide them with a complete archive by doing a "make
2) Supporting projects that are "closed source" has low priority. Why
don't you provide the source to all of the wireshark community?
3) Gerald is the one who does the tagging - and he has been
moving/getting settled in a new environment.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
