There's a cron job run by gerard which renders the book periodically, so your 
previous changes were overwritten by it.

You haven't read my message about "version string clashing" haven't you? ;-)


Basically, all rendered branches need to have different version string (i.e. 
&version; ENTITY) formats, otherwise books with the same version string will 
be rendered to the same dir under lfs/view (like what's happening now). This 
also seems logical from the reader POV, because the downloadable book 
tarballs will also have the same name convention for both testing and 
unstable and s/he would not distinguish both by just reading the version on 
book's front page.
