I *think* weeks. The trunk is pretty stable right now. But then again, that's why I'm asking here -- what do others think? Are there half-baked features in the trunk that are not / nowhere near ready for the v1.5.1?

I think the CMRs will be pretty much the same. However, we do reserve the right to have the more aggressive CMRs -- e.g., something "big" can be "ok, Terry/CMR committer, you have the v1.5 branch for 3 days. Bring your feature over to it." (might not be necessary if we re-sync, but we still reserve the right to do it ;-) ).
