 Not true, at least when I build the -current dbus 1.0.2 in context of 
                      D-Bus 1.0.2

 Not this year, since it means setting up a machine and building 
 everything needed for Evolution.

 Until now, we've gone with every second stable pkgsrc branch, since 
 updating a complete pkgsrc installation is complex and tricky, and 
 accompanied by fallout. So, even if we were to stick with pkgsrc 
 (we're going to move to Debian), we would not switch to the new 
 branch quickly.
 The message that non-fatal-bug fixes will not be pulled up even on a 
 live stable branch is interesting, though, to say the least...
