One other last-minute change was to remove all trailing space and tab
characters from source files and other text files, except for two
intentional trailing space characters in CONTACT and LICENSE files.
You may use the "-w" option to diff and interdiff to see just the actual
changes, excluding these whitespace changes.

With these changes made, I've just pushed -jumbo-5 out:

lftp> ls | fgrep jumbo-5
-rw-r--r--         348k  2011-06-02 19:36  john-1.7.7-jumbo-5.diff.gz

-rw-r--r--           1k  2011-06-02 19:44  john-1.7.7-jumbo-5.tar.bz2.sign
-rw-r--r--         1.1M  2011-06-02 19:43  john-1.7.7-jumbo-5.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--           1k  2011-06-02 19:44  john-1.7.7-jumbo-5.tar.gz.sign

I haven't announced this anywhere yet.  I intend to proceed to update
the website, write/edit announcements, etc.  This will take me a few
hours (as I will be getting distracted to lots of unrelated stuff).

Meanwhile, you may proceed with testing of -jumbo-5 proper, above.
If there's anything very wrong about it (worse than expected), I'll
release a -jumbo-6 shortly.

You may also edit the patches page on the wiki to move stuff that has
been integrated to the proper tables.
