Wasn't the question about a latest-stable-release tag/branch?
Me == confused ;-)

Since I have my personal (v)server since yesterday I'll use the branches/2.5
for my blog - it will be fairly stable at any time I think... since up to my
knowledge there are only backports from 2.6-bleeding and security stuff
which will be added...

When the major update to 2.6 is on I will have to switch branches but since
there will be major changes then I wouldn't want it to switch automatic
anyway. If I would have to maintain more than 3 or 4 blogs and would be
annoyed by having to switch manually I'd write myselfe a script to do so and
use tags instead of branches... think it would be the work of ~15 minutes at
