Right now I'm importing every release into my private cvs repository
and as security fixes are announced every fix as well. The clients are
thus running 1.5.1 + fixes without any additional files and/or updates from
1.5.2_ALPHA. The clients get the latest sources with anoncvs and/or cvsup
from my own server. This has been working quite well in fact.

I might even write a small how-to if people want that...
