So according to that webpage, trunk becomes 6.0 and the first
maintenance release of 5.0 becomes 5.1 (with 5.0.1 being the
pre-release state of the gcc-5_0-branch prior to the actual 5.1
maintenance release). What is confusing me is all of these references
in the mailing list to postponing bug fixes until 5.2 instead of 5.1
example). What is that all about?
