Well obviously there has been no public word of a VL6 being ready or any time soon
If you saw that information on the packagers' board, it should stay on the packagers board
normal repository for 5.9 is fine, and there shouldn't be any confusion on a package you see listed there from slapt-get or gslapt . Wordings I've seen above can lead new users / visitors into fear, and over nothing.
SO we leave the 6.0 stuff where we got it from. If we get it from the developers sections it belongs --in the developers section
and not into the public forums. This will save both confusion and unnecessary fear.
P.S. Much of the stuff for 6.0 (and even some packages) are "Dynamite" .
