Development of U-Boot happens pretty fast. _Many_ people  contribute,
and DENX is running quite a lot of projects, too.

There has never been a forma declaration of whatis  stable  and  what
not.   Normally   you   can  consider  each  version  tagges  with  a
U-Boot-X_Y_Z label as "stable".

I am aware of this problem. There is little I can do about it. But  I
regularly put tarballs of the "minor releases" on our FTP server; see

Well, we're preparing for something, but it will take a  little  more

Has there ever been any "stable" software? Isn't "stable software" an
oxymoron per se?

Real programmers don't comment their code. It was hard to  write,  it
should be hard to understand.
