That's odd.  After reading this in the current abstract:

      <para> This document is now mostly of historical value.  It
        presented a roadmap for the development of &os;'s &t.releng.5;
        branch.  It was originally written in February 2003 (between
        the 5.0 and 5.1 releases), and was intended to provide a plan
        for making the &t.releng.5; branch <quote>stable</quote>, both
        in terms of code quality and finalization of various
        APIs/ABIs.  For a different perspective, the article
        <ulink url="&url.articles.version-guide;">
          <quote>Choosing the &os; Version That Is Right For You</quote>
        may be of interest.  The version-guide article was written in August
        2005 (two and a half years later), and it contains a section
        discussing how these plans and events actually unfolded, as well as
        some lessons learned.</para>

it was obvious to me that the article is *not* describing the current
state of affairs.  Any suggestions about improving the text to make it
less confusing for people who just happen to stumble upon it now, are
very welcome :)
