Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but what exactly is the need
for a -RELEASE tag? Isn't it just the oldest date of a given -STABLE?
No. -RELEASE is a release schedule, where the code freezes and features
are being heavly tested to make sure that everything works the way it
should before the actual release is made (and thus printed on CD's etc).
-STABLE are backported features from -CURRENT wich the project wants to
have in the next release.
