Please keep in mind that pretest version is essentially a snapshot of
svn, and thus not well tested and subject to breakage on updates. Just
the other day I had to manually patch up the package database (tlpdb)
or tlmgr would not even start after some changes Norbert made to
option format. We greatly appreciate all those willing to play guinea
pigs and to help us iron out the kinks, but I would advise against
using pretest version on production systems unless you don't mind
reinstalling from scratch in case they break.
