I can agree, that cvs labelling is true, but users can be confused.

I am using CM at home under Linux and at work under Windows, but by initial
windows download i was confused and i did some search for non cvs release.
Perhaps because i know what CVS is and perhaps i treat CVS snapshot as more
for development (testing) than for using.

IMO, all stable versions are CVS snapshots ;-)

Labeling it as beta will be more user friendly and will indicate the his
status too.
