What does that commit have to do with having just released 1.5.1?

New features seem rather easy to follow using trunk/CHANGES and-or a diff
of the include directories.  For finer detail, it is much easier for a
person who cares to record revision numbers of desired feature backports in
trunk/STATUS than for everyone to have to touch an additional branch for
bug fixes, and then double check before we actually release it since we've
had issues with that in the past.
