well, the real point is that we should focus our energy on GRASS 7
development, and not playing with GRASS 6 as we do now. Is there any
comparison of devbr6 a relbr64? I am pretty sure that many changes,
fixes which has been committed to devbr6 were not applied later in
relbr64. It's too time/energy consuming for so small dev team to
maintain so many branches.

It's really time to focus on grass7 (if we really want to release this
version in reasonable time, less then one year or so). I fully agree
with MarkusM, it's time to kill devbr6.
