This is helpful, thanks. There have been a few mailing list threads in the past couple months about the relationship between different branches, migration of the development process, etc. Could some of this more recent information be gathered and summarized on a web (such as http://www.nongnu.org/quagga/devel.html) or wiki page? Would you prefer one or the other?
