1.5C and we haven't hit release yet.  I didn't think we hit the letter
releases until _after_ a release, i.e. once a release CYCLE starts, isn't
-current supposed to stay in sync until the actual release and then it
picks up the dev branch again?

What'd I miss?  1.5 isn't due out until after the RSA patent expires.
Not to mention that, since 1.5_ALPHA is the most recent (i.e. we
haven't seen _BETA or 1.5 proper), 1.5 isn't really considered stable.
