Greg: Thanks again for all the work you do on the stable Linux kernel. I'm having trouble understanding exactly what the policy of the stable team is. Could you spell it out for me? At the risk of putting the wrong words into your mouth (and I apologize if this is too far off), I currently think it might be something like this: "Users need to choose someone who prepares kernel releases for them, be it the stable team (stable kernel), Linus Torvalds (mainline kernel), or their Linux distribution (distribution kernel), and whenever that person says to upgrade, they need to upgrade ASAP. The stable team isn't going to spend the time writing explanations about the details of each bug so that users can decide for themselves how urgent that issue is in their deployments." Is that right?
