[Kernel] Posted Feb 1, 2013 4:03 UTC (Fri) by mkerrisk
Linus has released the sixth 3.8 prepatch while attending linux.conf.au 2013 in Canberra. "I have a CleverPlan(tm) to make *sure* that rc7 will be better and much smaller. That plan largely depends on me being unreachable for the next week due to the fact that there is no internet under water." Once he returns from diving, he plans to be very aggressive about accepting only patches that "fix major security issues, big user-reported regressions, or nasty oopses".
Update: the sharp-eyed observer will note that the code name for the release has changed; it is now "Unicycling Gorilla".
