Re: version stability question

Thanks.  That's about what I thought, but it helps to have it from the source.

Good morning,

Gentoo is finally getting around to marking 2.5.1 as stable, but they are asking for confirmation that 
2.5.1 is really considered stable and not development:

    Looks like 'master' branch is still the 2.4.x versions one:

    Is 2.5.x considered as stable by upstream? (in general, even numbers are for development versions in 
"gnome" stuff)

Does git need some poking, and can I tell them it is sufficiently stable?

Can anyone answer this?

There's not much currently going on in either master or the gtk3 branch, which I guess means that 2.5.1 in 
gtk3 is quite stable. It still fails to build in a git tree, because the address book editor still uses 
deprecated API, but that wouldn't get in the way of a tarball build.

BTW: Balsa doesn't subscribe to the odd/even convention, as far as I know, so the numbering is no reason to 
view 2.5.1 as unstable.
