Greg Kroah-Hartman has announced
changes in how the stable kernel updates are done. "So, it's 'back
to our roots' time, and I'm now only going to be doing -stable releases for
the last kernel released, with the usual one or two release overlap with
the latest release from Linus to give people a chance to move over and have
the new release stabilize a bit.
" That said, the long-term 2.6.27
and 2.6.32 maintenance will continue, but 2.6.27 will probably have a new
maintainer soon. Also, Andi Kleen has stepped
forward to maintain 2.6.35
for the indefinite future.
