I also believe that 5.0.x will be the stable version around for a while.

There is no expected release date on 5.1.x
and note that 5.1.x will always be experimental.
So the first releases will be releases of experimental versions.
5.2.0 will be the next stable release and this is a bit away.

However we try to get 5.1.x out and stable as fast
as possible which you probably should count in quarter of years.
Any help is appreciated.

We need people who fix bugs in 5.0.x and do maintance releases.
Vector support is not bad in principle it just could be a lot better.

People interested in developing and advancing 5.1.x are of
course wanted and Radim does a very good job in this area.

Thus Chris can pick his choice and help GRASS one or the other
or both ways. :)
