for me ( and as far as i know ) STABLE is a development patch and it will end up
with the next RELEASE version.. such as 5.4-STABLE will be patch gradually until
it became 5.5-RELEASE. Anyway 5.4-RELEASE-pX is a security fixes ( and possibly
but it still remains as RELEASE and not
some of the people ( like me ) just prefer to -pX rather than -STABLE. So far
i'm not needed -CURRENT yet
even RELEASE -pX is powerful enough and suits my needs for my prod servers..
for this case ( back to the topics ), I think this guy do the right method for
cvsup-ed to 5.5-RELEASE-pX
but it end up with 5.5-STABLE. So i think we better help him and solve it since
he maybe not need -STABLE
like u said
p/s: Correct me if I'm wrong anyone!
