Parent article: 2.8.0?
Just to provide more detail on why I personally want this - we often have fights with management about sticking with some old crufty kernel, or going with a newer one. Simply saying: 2.6.27 is woefully out of date doesn't give the same sense as 2008.10 is almost 3 years old.
Yes I know all the other arguments about why you would want to use 2.6.27, but think about this: when 2.6.27 came out, a number of devices we use use frequently weren't even on the drawing board, or were brand spanking new and still being debugged (SSDs anyone?).
