Ok. I annotated 2.5.1 and asked Philippe about it, he told me that he
never annotated 2.4 releases, so I stopped annotating them. In fact
annotating 2.5.1 was the real mistake, but I guess you are right, I
should annotate all of them. Can we change the annotation afterwards?
Anyway, thanks for the remark. If you wonder why I pushed 2.5.4 and did
not announced it, the announce will come tonight.
