There is also multi-arching all the targets.  I should probably note 
that even if I didn't propose this I would have probably scrubbed the 
5.2 list clean.

Ah, sooner than that :-) A best case senario puts the schedule at: 
announce branch 2002-01-16; branch 2002-01-23; release 2002-02-06.

People have often said that GDB should be released more often.  Looks 
like it might happen.
