LWN.net Weekly Edition for May 16, 2013
A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
The commit count is an artifact of how the kvm git tree is managed.
In reality expect around 60 commits for 2.6.27-rc1 (well below the kvm average).
2.6.27 KVM numbers are incorrect
Posted Jul 3, 2008 11:44 UTC (Thu) by Felix_the_Mac (guest, #32242)
I am unsure how the KVM changelog (http://kvm.qumranet.com/kvmwiki/ChangeLog) relates to the
i.e. Will 2.6.26-release contain all (kernel parts) of KVM-70?
Or will that be in 2.6.27-rc1?
How can one tell?

There's no 1:1 correspondence.
kvm-nn releases are development snapshots, really, and contain new features, bug fixes, and
Linux releases will generally contain the last kvm snapshot before the merge windows starts,
and bug fixes that accumulate in the 2+ months up to the release. So 2.6.27-rc1 will roughly
contain kvm-70 plus all bug fixes since applied.

Thanks for the explanation.
"So 2.6.27-rc1 will roughly contain kvm-70 plus all bug fixes since applied."
Unless KVM-71 comes out soon! :-)
