The thing that should be somewhere is an authoritative list of  
changes and current behavior. It looks like the bug documentation has  
that in one post but then others (and quite lengthy ones) follow, so  
it's not clear what still holds and nobody should be required to read  
through the discussion (BTW Chris/Sendu: don't discuss such things on  
bugzilla - it's by all means not meant for that purpose).

So - maybe just add a page to the wiki? It really doesn't matter that  
much how it's called unless somebody chimes in here; the page can be  
renamed and the content be migrated if deemed necessary later.

I'm still confused as to why we are jumping from 1.5.1 to 1.5.5.  
Also, I'm confused as to why some of the pre-1.5.1 changes are under  
Main Trunk, and not under 1.5.1. So I guess I'm the wrong person to  
answer ...
