I'm going to be maintaining the 3.14 kernel as a "longterm" kernel for
the next two years, so mention that on the kernel.org site.

3.14 to be the next longterm stable kernel

More digits of π for us! 3.14.15 will come soon, but alas 3.14.159 will probably not happen, let alone 3.14.1592. 3.0.101 is the largest patchlevel we've gotten in recent history. Digging in https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/ I found 2.1.132 from when 2.odd.* was the unstable branch.

Perhaps a distro kernel might be named 3.14.15-9. Ubuntu skipped 3.14, though. Debian Jessie is currently on 3.14 but may advance to 3.16 ( https://lists.debian.org/debian-kernel/2014/05/msg00008.html ).

3.10, 3.12, and 3.14? So close together? Might almost make every kernel a LTS.

.10 and .14 are maintained by Greg Kroah-Hartman for his reasons.
.12 is maintained by Jiri Slaby for his own different reasons.

If someone wants to maintain .11 and .13 I'm sure that would be OK too.

As far as I can tell there is very little cost to anyone but the maintainer (and their team, if they have one).

3.13 is indeed being maintained by Ubuntu as a long term support release for 14.04

Thank you, Greg KH, for keeping the Kernel well-rounded for us for a while.

π-Kernel for everyone! ;-)

I look forward to the 3.14.15 point release :)
