Yes.  However, if nothing really serious happens(*), the cr-0x5f1 branch
will not get any more updates, and there won't be any more 1.5.x
release.  Everything new or improved should only go into CVS HEAD.
Therefore, usually CVS HEAD is the only branch the public needs to care


(*) like, say, the 1.5.24 version needs a year 2038 fix.
