Questions about Alfresco versions

Hi all,

Please, someone could answer a few questions to make the subject clearest ?

1) Alfresco Versions
What's the difference between versions like 3.3 HF1, SP1, SP2 … 3.3g (seen on JIRA) ?
Are these subversions (fixes/patches) only available for Enterprise version ?

2) Patches / fixes
- Fixes/patches, such as SPx, are made (and applied ?) by Alfresco Engineers (SP packages) if we have Enterprise Version with support contract ?
- Fixes, in Community Version, must be applied by ourselves by downloading the latest revision (or a specific revision ?) from SVN HEAD, recompile the .WAR files from Eclipse and replace them ?
- Latest revision downloadable from SVN HEAD is the latest "stable" subversion of Alfresco Community product ? Could you explain quickly the diffrence between SVN HEAD and nightly builds ?

- How do we know which build (specially 3.3g Community Version 2860 build) match with which SVN revision ?
BY READING http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_Community_Edition_3.3g_Release_Notes !!!
-> The SVN revision number for Alfresco Community Edition 3.3 G is 20557
… Sorry, sometimes I write faster than I read !!!

3) Development Environment
According to http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_on_Eclipse and http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_SVN_Development_Environment, we have to set a development environment to debug/improve ourselves the source code or simply to rebuild .WAR files to get the latest fixes/patches for our version, is this correct ?

Thank you for your answers !
