ok, it's official:


we've moving to 2 digit numbers for core.  i'll fix the relevant  
handbook pages (http://drupal.org/node/27362) and write up a concise  
summary of the change to post on this list and as a front-page d.o post.

meanwhile, kjartan happened to be in IRC and was kind enough to fix  
the cvs access control scripts to prevent "DRUPAL-5-0" branches from  
being made anymore, and allowing "DRUPAL-5" branches to be created,  

so, anyone who finishes porting a module to the Drupal 5 API, please  
make a "DRUPAL-5" branch for it via "cvs tag -b DRUPAL-5  

i'll work on some cvs voodoo to rename our existing DRUPAL-5-0  
branches next...

thanks for your patience while we get through the pain-before-the- 
gain. ;)
