Well, head is for development AFAIK, so I cannot simply publish on the
squid web pages tht developers need automake-head. And getting folk to
grab a CVS snapshot just to develop squid is a little unreasonable
(think interference with package management on debian/redhat, ports tree
on *BSD etc). But pointing at the most recent release is ok!.

I'm cool with that too - whatever is easier and more acceptable for the
core automake developers.
