Let me ask just one question:

	How some parts of NetBSD-current becomes NetBSD-stable?

For example, someone wrote excelent utility, it was included into
-current, and many people have test it. When they mark that utility as
stable and ready to merge into NetBSD-stable branch?

Another example. Let assume NetBSD-stable have some driver, say tlp(4).
Someone have faced within chip, completely supported by this driver.
He/she includes support for that driver into -current. Moreover, that
chip works just perfect on both stable and current for that developer.
Is there are any chances to support that driver in stable too (before
whole current trunk becomes a stable, i.e. 1.5 -> 1.6)?

Thanks for any explainations.
