Let me sum up a few important mails to the curiously named thread " Core:  
DRUPAL-5 branched " and let me add my thoughts.

Neil said that he would like paths like  
http://api.drupal.org/api/function/hook_menu/6.x so that we can have tabs  
per version.

Then came the question (Derek, I tink) -- what should reside on  

Earnie Boyd followed up to this: upgrade instructions. He thinks it's a  
lot of work. But it's not -- we already write these for the handbook. It  
might be some work restructure the 4.7 -> 5 instructions into this but the  
5 -> 6 already can be written into a new structure. What remains is  
deciding this structure. I suggest using another .php let's say update.php  
besides hook.php and friends and free-form Doxygen describing the  
transition where necessary for each hook. So the 4.7 -> 5 restructure will  
become a matter of copy-paste.
