I'm confused.  If NetBSD 1.3 was officially released on the 4th and is supposed
to be stable for a week before the trunk reverts to -current, why are there
files still being updated, like the above?

One of the things I've never been able to fully understand was that I could
never sup up to a certain particular day (i.e. release day), comment out the
sup from root's "crontab" file, and then have my /usr/src contents be exactly
the same as what I could get by downloading the "official" sources for the
releases and un-tar'ing them.  A recursive "diff" *always* found differences.
