No RTEMS 4.11 in RSB?

I am thoroughly confused with regards to 4.11, but all I want to be able to do is follow the directions on the wiki. 
I was trying to demonstrate to someone how to use the RSB to build 4.9 to support maintenance of a project as well as follow the guidance on the wiki to build 4.11. Neither works at present.

My immediate need of being able to build a working 4.9 toolset is satisfied so I am happy to wait for things to settle. I guess I missed something in the evolution form 4.10 to 4.12.

> There is no plan to merge 4.11 back in and there are plans to remove 4.9 and 4.10 and to place them on their own branches just like 4.11. As you can see the ability to support all releases at the same time is complicated. Once 4.9 and 4.10 are split all that needs to change is 4.12 to 4.9 and 4.10 and things should work. Further to this all features in the one version can be confusing to users.
