When 2.5.1 was originally presented, it was presented as "2.5 with the
charging issue fixed," was how I meant the "supposed."

And by "the forums" I meant "users host their own builds where they can, and
keep updates restricted to the unsupported section of the forum."

I just don't feel it's appropriate any more that it's hosted in the wiki as
it's moved from "a basic bugfix on 2.5" to a full "unsupported build" and as
well still maintains the 2.5.1 misnomor which is misleading even if it does
say clearly that it's private and unsupported, as at this point it's no
longer just a bugfix but a modification.
