Yeah, I saw that in the "cvs-src summary for October 11-18" email:

Notable changes
RELENG_5_3 moves into RC, RELENG_5 becomes -STABLE
Scott Long (scottl) created the RELENG_5_3 branch, moving 5.3 from beta to
Release Candidate status.  At the same time, he made the RELENG_5 branch
into the new -STABLE.


I guess I should start planning my migrations. Most of them are of the
"install 5.3 on a new machines and replace an existing RELENG_4 machine
with it", cascade and repeat variety. I've got one box with mor SCSI
devices than I can count that's heavily vinum dependent (now gvinum, I
guess) that I'm dreading converting. It might live as RELENG_4 for
another year or so.

You know, I still don't have a machine beefy enough to build OO.org[1],
and http://projects.imp.ch/openoffice/ still has 1.1.0_1 as the most
recent package set. Any chance you have packages suitable for 4-STABLE
kicking around on an FTP site?

LOL! And you were only up until 11, so it seems you avoided the usual
side-effects ;-)

See, with a bit more caffeine you might've keep on truckin' *grin*.


1. Of course, I tend to collect older hardware so "beefy" is definitely
   relative in this case. http://www.seekingfire.com/projects/e3hardware/

Everything leads us to believe that there exists a certain point of the
intelligence at which life and death, the real and the imaginary, the past and
the future ... cease to be perceived as opposites.
