I'm just replying to Kuvaja, Erno, who pretends that plan D will give
"indicator how much the stable branch has moved in". My answer is: not
it wont. Maybe there was lots of cosmetic patches (like typos, man page,
or who knows...). The number of patch is an indication of ... nothing,

The only way to have indications is release notes. Since it looks like
there's not enough resources to write them, we're giving up on them.
It's really a shame, because I'm sure it was valuable for our users.
