that is my concern too - but I think rather than focusing on grass7
we should freeze all new development, fix everything that needs to be  
and release GRASS64 final and move on to grass7 after that is done,
with only bug fixes allowed for grass6*

Currently, quite a bit of work is done on grass7 with grass64 release  
pretty far from final release state, so as you say, the development
is getting splintered and it is getting more difficult to do bug  
fixes in both
(as I have seen recently with v.surf.rst).

just a suggestion - it would be really nice to have a new stable  
grass release -
as there are still people downloading and installing GRASS6.2
