What are the plans for 5.0.1?

More regressions like the MapServer issue reported by Jeff are likely to
surface ones PROJ 5.0.0 makes it onto more users systems.

Ideally a patch release is relatively soon, having to wait a year for a
new release will be undesirable (which was about the release cyclce of
PROJ 4.9).

I'm sensing a bit of release fatigue which may hurt users if they have
to wait a long time for a patch release to fix the regressions
introduced in 5.0.0.

Kind Regards,
