This is an entirely reasonable request; the problem is that the
documentation rarely gets updated immediately when new features are
added.  I'm probably the worst offender among the OCaml development
team, updating the documentation only a few days before a release :-)

So, I agree the CVS public repository is of little use when the system
undergoes large changes; that's why we try to do a beta release (such
as 2.99) in this case.

Best wishes,
