As is announced at the beginning of the release process, the
NetBSD-current tree mirrors the release branch until (a bit after) the
release has been shipped.
There are two purposes for that, really:
(1) get many more people to test the release code, and
(2) allow people to step off the bus, and get back to a stable
and unchanging system (i.e. the release), if they're
tired of tracking -current.
