I selected 5.34 because PACKAGE_VERSION in current CVS is already set to 
5.34, "make install" puts docsfiles in 
/usr/share/doc/smartmontools-5.34, programs output this version, etc.

If the above doesn't matter, I suggest to use


because it is not a 5.33pre-release but a release from current CVS 
snapshot which is based on 5.33.

Yes, thanks.
