Other folks on the list seem to understand this differently
than I do.  My understanding is that the 'cutting-edge'
development branch of 5.x is -CURRENT.  If this is what you
are wanting to track, then use:

src-all tag=.

I've never heard of 5.1-stable.  Others may be able to give
better answers.
