To add support to Dmitri's email, I'd like to add this:

Without a D6 version of views, drupal.org will not be able to upgrade  
to D6, either, since we're going to rip out about a 1/3 of the code  
in project* and make it require views, instead of porting all that  
nasty code to D6.  Without a d.o upgrade, 6.0 will not be released.

Please help.
