To be honest, it's not clear that there's going to be another CVS
release, either "stable" or "feature". Waiting for the useful features
to get merged back into the stable branch looked like it would take so
long that for the Debian packages I just moved onto the feature branch
a long time ago.

  Getting a SCSI chain working is perfectly simple if you remember that there
  must be exactly three terminations: one on one end of the cable, one on the
  far end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with a silver-handled
  knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony DeBoer
