The public build service svn doesn't have a "shadow" svn internally
where things are developed and later moved out. Whatever is in the
public svn now is being developed there.

It is true that not everything made it to the public svn yet for several
reasons. This is an unfortunate, but as we all hope temporary situation.
This only affects the backend part. API frontend and clients are in the
public svn, and developments happens there.
