The answer depends on what you would like:
- The official bindings svn tends to have tests in place and moves relatively
slowly. Fixes and additional code sometimes don't get accepted for a variety
of reasons. If the contributor loses interest at the wrong time, his
contribution vanishes into the depths of the mailing list archives.
- With my repository, you get all of the above, plus most (all?) of the fixes
and contributions that got dropped previously. You get a higher chance of
finding bindings for the functionality you want (or having a bug fixed that
someone else noticed), in exchange for a slightly higher likelihood of
breakage if you end up using one of the newer parts.
