Better yet, are you sure you understand the ``STABLE'' moniker? I find
that most people who are asking this are unfamiliar with what the
``STABLE'' branch is -- a live development branch where code is merged
to stablize once it has proven its ``test of time'' from CURRENT. It's
not necessarily the most stable code, security wise. You should track
-RELEASE plus security patches for a ``stable'' system in that sense.
