For the curious, I've updated the documents for HEAD and RELENG_6_1 on
my completely unofficial Release Documentation site:
(It's not updated as often as it once was, but for the moment it is
current with respect to what's in CVS. In the event that I notice any
changes to the release notes, I'll try to rebuild them.)

I want to reemphasize this point for folks. When I was a member of the
RE team, we often saw weird things happening late in the process (I
won't jinx the current team by citing examples). I know that a lot of
people are anxiously awaiting 6.1-RELEASE and it's been a *long* release
cycle...just be patient a little longer...
