It will be updated as necessary. The current version of the
developers' handbook explains how to use SVN to get the latest
version of phpconf and the webGUI. The idea is to fetch other files
needed for building images (kernel configs, patches etc.) from the
repository as well. As you've discovered, the "build" folder in trunk
already contains most of what's needed, so the developer's handbook
could be changed if somebody gets the chance.

Yes, as long as we don't actually move to something else.

I'd prefer not to start mixing up operating system and webGUI/phpconf
versions. There are too many dependencies and it's just not worth the
effort. When/if we move to FreeBSD 6.0, trunk will be copied to a new
maintenance branch, then all the files in trunk will be modified as

Tags are *never* changed. Changes may only be committed to branches
or the trunk. The build folder was introduced after 1.21 was tagged.
The next tagged version (probably 1.22) will have one as well.

No, if anybody commits to a tag directory they'll have their SVN
commit access revoked. ;)
