Of course we are following it.
And the quality of GRASS releases seems to have improved.
To sell a CD like the FreeGIS-CD you need to test it
on different platforms. If at all times improvements are accepted,
testing would start again and you can almost never release.
This why all serious Free Software distributions most of the time
contain older versions. It is a tradeoff decision to make.
Anyway I'm not deeply in the CD releasing process here,
we'll see how far we are and if GRASS 5.0.2 poses problems.
In any case there is going to be a next revision and hopefully
a fast update.
Demand for the CD is not that high that we could affort
more manpower on it.
