4.6.4 or 4.6.5?

I beg to differ ... I do!

4.6.x is outdated and in "bug fix" only mode. It lacks all the years (!)
of progress on the configuration and toolchain side. You won't even be
able to build 4.6.x with modern toolchains.

Any new development at least by me, will take place on cvs trunk /
rtems-4.7, only.
