2.6.16 has become a bit dated, and I'll maintain 2.6.27 for a few years
as a replacement.
As with 2.6.16, I'll pickup maintenance when the normal -stable
maintenance ends (at some point after 2.6.28 gets released in January).
It is intended to fill the niche for users who are not using
distribution kernels but want to use a regression-free kernel for a
longer time. It might be a small part of the userbase, but after the
experiences with 2.6.16 I can say that there are quite a few users
who appreciate such an offering.
