I got a couple of emails about this offlist yesterday - we seem to come 
up against this every release, and its really been answered a few times 
already. Maybe we need a FAQ somewhere for this :)

all updates to the /5/ tree are monitored and anything which has a 
remote or local exploit will get pushed into the /5/ tree; things in 5.6 
and against 5.6 that dont meet that criteria wait for 5.6 release. build 
order, linking, inheriting upstream testing etc etc to blame.
