2.6.10-as is now in purely maintenance mode; that is, I'll only include
security fixes or quick things that people send me (that don't require
much effort on my part :). This includes the security fix from
126.96.36.199. I'll have 2.6.11-as1 soon, after I sync up w/ Debian stuff
and go through about 800 more changesets. We'll see where 2.6.x.y goes
from there; if feeding patches is easy, then there won't be much need
for -as; otherwise, I'll continue doing it as a vendor base (at least
one person who does vendor kernels has expressed the opinion that they'd
prefer 2.6.x.y to be a bit more liberal than it currently is).
Also, note the email address; I'm trying to phase out usage of my
voxel.net address, as I no longer work there.
The -as tree is intended to include only security and bugfixes, from
various sources. I do not include hardware driver updates
(specifically, anything that changes how the hardware registers
themselves are probed/poked), large subsystem updates, cleanups, and so
on; only fixes that will not contain regressions. The hope is that
vendors/distributors can use this tree as a base for their kernels. It
is also what I'd want a 2.6.x.y tree to have.
The kernel patches can be grabbed from here:
