I'm well aware of that. My question was only about naming
People often talk about either "-current" and "-stable",
so was curious what RELENG_7 would be called right now.
Obviously it's not called "-current", but (according to
you and Simon) it's not called "-stable" either.
Actually the often used terms "-current" and "-stable"
are ambiguous and not really accurate. E.g. someone
talks about "the -stable branch" and you have no idea
which one of the several RELENG_* ones he means. It's
probably better to always use the CVS names or the
branch name (from sys/conf/newvers.sh).

I'm not thinking that way. :-) I do know very well that
the -stable branches are development branches. Although
in pre-4.0 days (when release branches didn't exist)
-stable had a slightly different meaning, but it has
really been a long time since then.

"python" is more likely to pass unharmed through your spelling
checker than "perl".
