The DRUPAL-4-5 *branch* is maintained, DRUPAL-4-5-1 and DRUPAL-4-5-2 are 
*tags* on that branch, and it is possible that there will be a 
DRUPAL-4-5-3 tag, if enough bug fixes come in. DRUPAL-4-4 is not 
maintained AFAIK.

The HEAD *branch* will be branched into DRUPAL-4-6 later, and obviously 
is also heavily maintained :)

Note that the minor version tags are not used in the contrib CVS module, 
all modules in the DRUPAL-4-5 branch there are supposed to work with all 
core code released from the DRUPAL-4-5 core branch, as well as with the 
latest code in that branch. To put the other way, there are no tags used 
in the contrib repository, only branches.
