Since the board file format in the master branch is no longer compatible
with the 5.1 branch, I don't see any issues with pushing file format
changes.  I only ask that before you push commits that affect the file
format, please post your changes so we can take a look at them so we can
review the file format changes before we merge them.  Please be sure to
keep the file version up to date correctly as you push your individual
changes to prevent any user issues.
