 Then I suggest that we postpone 2.1.5 one week, if that's possible
for Daniel. I should have time for looking into the gcc 4.3 problem
early next week.

 I only noticed these problems when compiling Freeciv for Ubuntu
Intrepid (pre-alpha distribution), which uses gcc 4.3.1 release

 See http://vcust127.louhi.net/freeciv/testing/compilation.php

 Major releases: I definitely agree. Currently new features
implemented immediately after branching live years in our svn before
they are in any release = really used.
 Minor releases: S2_1 is already quite mature, just occasional minor
fixes go in. No point in making releases identical to previous one :-)

 I'll be away until Monday.
