I think we should consider a few things:
- is M5 ready for stable/dev separation?  (I think not yet)
- further releases should work against the stable versions (IMHO)
- does M5 rely on "features" from M4 kernel, or not?  (I don't know,
  currently not)

Based on that I'd like to decide to either test against stable or
current, as both will not really be of much added value.  Maybe we
should switch to stable now, and switch back to current when M5 relies
on added features not in the stable branch.

Of course it was tagged :)  I even sent a mail about that to you.
Unfortunately I just tagged with another naming scheme (not on purpose),
so that's why you might not have found it.
