To even exclude the timestamp differences in the HTML pages:
diff -ru --exclude=".svn" --exclude=".html" grass64_release
grass65_release  | wc -l

Not really the same :)

Yes: most tickets I have indicated earlier which contain a backport

that time any more to catch up with incomplete tickets... (see above).

And yes, energy should go of course into GRASS 7.
