Firstly I never said 2.0.29 is obsolete.  In fact, this has been fixed in
2.0.29-5 which is still in the Incoming directory on master (it's been there
for weeks).  And secondly as far as I am concerned there is no point in keeping
2.0.27 in bo since there has been no reported bugs introduced in the latter
versions that are serious enough to require the presense of 2.0.27 in bo.
