I agree with you. Those two are supposed to provide differently "matured"
chromium, I suppose marked as "stable, testing, unstable" by Google or so.
I really can't understand if they are both needed, since the meaning of
"stability" in svn, and especially on a browser that is still experimental
(but with satisfactory stability), is relative.
For the chromium-snapshot one's, i'd propose to keep only the one that is
autodownloaded (I guess it's no.13). But, it downloads only the 32bit package.
No.12 does the same, but for the 64bit package.
