I do not agree with that. What is the problem using 5.3 instead of 5.0?
Also, packagers will not upgrade to 5.7 if there still is a "stable" 5.0.
More generally, a plea from a grass end user: stick to the KIS principle. I
may miss some points, do not see any major problem in using 5.7. It is
already far better than 5.0, and most users cannot afford missing the
excellent new fector features. So, why bother with other versions? I think
concentrating the (little) energies on one version, we'll get better results
Overall, the situation is very strange (I do not know of any other program in
this state), and should be better avoided.
Am I wrong?

Sorry, but I do not see your point (I may be naive): why should I use 5.3
instead of 5.7? I cannot afford missing the new vector functionalities, and I
think few professional gis users could, nowadays.
So why exactly we could not recommend 5.7 straight away?
I think users (especially the professionals, main target for GRASS) are
concerned by the ratio functionalities/bugs, not just bug number.
For instance, how many Debian woody desktop users are around?
All the best.
