/repos/asf/apr/apr/trunk is 2.0, yes
/repos/asf/apr/apr-util/trunk is dead (merged into apr/trunk/)
/repos/asf/apr/apr/branches/1.5.x is current
/repos/asf/apr/apr/branches/1.6.x is next
/repos/asf/apr/apr-util/branches/1.5.x is current
/repos/asf/apr/apr-util/branches/1.6.x is next
The only reason I see for a 1.5.x release would be a security fix, but
we have no regression reports building 1.6.x, it won't be necessary to
those to 1.5.x IMO.
