    3838After a while, this (simple and simple-minded) bootstrapping process will cease to work: the newer source code will diverge from the code used to build the lisp image enough that it'll have to be bootstrapped in a more complicated (and usually totally ad-hoc) way.  When this happens, new tarballs are produced.

     40= Tracking changes =
     41A !ChangeLog (basically, svn commit history that affects the ''trunk'') file is maintained as part of the source hierarchy and regenerated automatically every hour or so; when it changes, it's also copied to the ftp testing directory on clozure.com.  Glancing at this file every now and then enables you to see whether recent changes are of interest to you.
