The Ubuntu kernel team will pick up stable maintenance where Greg KH
left off with v3.13.11 (thanks, Greg!)...

The Ubuntu kernel team is pleased to announce that we will be providing
extended stable support for the Linux 3.13 kernel until April 2016 as a
third party effort maintained on our infrastructure.

Our linux-3.13.y{-queue,-review} stable branches will fork from v3.13.11
and will be published here:


We will use the same stable request/review workflow and follow the
standard upstream stable kernel rules.  More details are available at

We welcome any feedback and contribution to this effort.  We will be
posting the first review cycle patch set in a week or two.

Great to have this project, but wouldn't it be better for collaboration to host that effort on infrastructure? I suppose other vendors will not be exactly thrilled to help to what appears to the outside world as an Ubuntu project...
