I want to point out that we appeared to have fixed our release problems. The 
last time we had released a .2, aside from the LTS 5.6.2, was 5.4.2.

But we HAD fixed the problem. 5.9.2 was released before 5.10.0. In fact, even 
5.9.3 was released before 5.10.0. This means we managed TWO releases between 
5.9.1 and 5.10.0. Taking this to the case now, it would allow us to release 
5.9.5 and 5.10.2 before 5.11.0 if we wanted to.
