Perhaps it's time to let Drupal 5.2 out of the bag soon? It's been 6+ months
since an update to the branch and I imagine scores of updates to the

After installing the current Drupal 5.x-dev tarball (as an experiment) I
discover that there are database updates to the system and comments tables -
this and/or other changes apparently breaks some contributed modules as I
discover through a quick survey of the site (e.g., the spam module, though
on, would not display and settings pages).

It might be nice to for contrib authors to be able to update their modules
now so that a) they still feel compelled to since Drupal 5 is still the
current release, and b) so there's at least a short lag between needing to
update code for Drupal 5.2 and needing to update it for Drupal 6.
