I know you are going to have limited availability starting on the 21st.  I
propose that before you go on holiday we stop new feature coding for the
5.0 release, and move solely to bug fixing.  The only concrete action for
that being your merge of the default branch on to the stable branch.  The
new bug reports have already been trending this direction with several
about the build system and the test suite.

I'm fine with doing the merge of default to stable whenever you think it
is time.  If you are ready now, I can do it today.

Yes, let's get on with it.

OK, I merged default to stable and set the version number there to 5.0.1. With the new version numbering scheme described in etc/HACKING.md, this version indicates the stabilization period leading up to the 5.1.0 release.

It's too late for any big chunks of code to be added to the stable version.

I have also bumped the version on default to 6.0.0 (active development period leading up to the 6.1.0 release), so this is also the appropriate time to make major changes on default.
