There's definitely a need for the 0.5 branch.     Testing.  Bug 
reports.   Helping 0.6.0 be a better release.   If no one
uses source/testing releases, releases will go a lot slower.

If you're willing to try out 0.5.x/source now, you should continue to 
use it, and the changes coming in 0.6.0 will be very very
slight.   You'll have a leg up, even.

yeah, the spec file is in git and "make" is set to use that

"make" straight out of the source checkout builds RPMs. 
They will build just like they do on anyone else's box.
