Because new features that were built into Horde will have to be configured. So 
new configuration values have to be created in the config files.

Because that's the definition of snaps. Snaps are snapshots of work in 
development. Use for testing and bug reporting and for helping horde getting 

If you want the version where problems have been fixed, then don't use snaps 
but the release version.

First way: Untar the snapshot tarball. There it is in the config directory.

Second way: Check out from CVS. There it is in the config directory.
