correct. I once started to tag releases, but forgot to continue. ;-)

You are welcome. First of all, please use the stable-1.5 branch as a
base for your modifications and respect the CodingStyle.txt document in
the branch root.

If new features shall be added, it is a good idea to discuss them in the
etherlab-dev list first, to assure, that the modifications are useful
for many users and will not brake functionality used by others.

When finished, you are welcome to send patches or a mercurial bundle to the
etherlab-dev list, so that many people can test them, before I pull them
into the main repository.

Best regards,
Florian Pose
