Just for good measure:

If you've been using FreeBSD that long, I'm amazed how little you've 
learned.  For example, you don't even get the terminology right: 
RELENG_5 is not a release, it's a branch.  Plus, 5.x hasn't been 
declared -STABLE so it doesn't even exist yet.

You're also quite ignorant on the current state of the project.

KSE isn't complete on sparc, although it should work fine on i386, 
amd64, and i64.  Sparc KSE support must be complete and stable before 
the 5.3 release:

RAIDframe was removed back in March:

Alpha was demoted to Tier 2 earlier this month because no one is willing 
to maintain it and few use it in the first place:

After proving your credentials so well above, I'm not surprised a search 
for your name turns up nothing.  Farewell "Maxim Hermione".  Don't let 
the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
