[postgis-users] CVS Stability

Sorry, Norman, I'm taking the cowards way out.
I have released a 0.7.5, which holds all the bug fixes since 0.7.4.
This will have to hold everyone together until the 0.8 release. I do 
not anticipate the delay from now until 0.8 should be all that long 
(one month max) and we really do not have enough parallel development 
(or a sufficiently well defined release cycle) to warrant running a 
separate branch for the stable tree at this time. When the time comes 
for the bottom-up rewrite which Dave keeps talking about, we will fork 
a stable branch.
So, my warning stands: use the CVS version only if you're in an 
experimental mood.
