Linux: 2.6.23 stability luglio 19, 2007Posted by linuxiano in kernel, Linux.
In response to another merge request, Andrew Morton retorted, “argh. I have a backlog of maybe 300 patches here which I am cheerfully ignoring while concentrating on preventing 2.6.23 from being less of a disaster than it has already been.” He noted that he was not planning to merge any new code into his -mm tree for 2.6.23 inclusion, “the door for new 2.6.23 material shut two weeks ago. Here, at least.” He went on to note:
“Please, stop writing patches. Maybe do something to help get 2.6.23 off its back. Like, go review some of the code which people are cheerfully merging five minutes after having written it.”
Recent merges into the upcoming 2.6.23 kernel can be found by browsing the gitweb interface to Linus’ 2.6 kernel tree. The 2.6.23-rc1 kernel should be released on or shortly after Sunday the 22nd, two weeks after 2.6.22 was released, and at which time the merge window is closed.
