2005-07-28 23:34:29 Hey everybody,

as many of you are aware, we were talking (not enough) about the release process at LKS this year.

This ain't it.

This is just the regular old release "process", with some LKS backlog put in for good measure.

But the good news is, that I'll try the new release process after 2.6.13 is out, which is hopefully not too far away. Which means that we should try to let people know about the fact that if they want to merge stuff, they should do so in the first two weeks after the 2.6.13 release, and no later (also, no earlier either, by now).

So if you have a favourite kernel developer, please wake him up with a friendly kick to the head and explain this concept to him in small easy-to-understand words, and tell him that we're in the freeze process for 2.6.13 now, and that he should be gathering up the patches, and make sure they get to me _after_ 2.6.13 is out, but at that point do it in a timely manner.


In the meantime, here's the 2.6.13-rc4 update, with a diffstat so horribly ugly that I won't even show it (the kernel list would eat it as too big anyway), and I'll have to go fix my code that generates it.

Oh, and in case you wonder, it's ugly because a cris architecture update with long filenames that really causes git-apply to output som rather nasty-looking diffstats ;)

ALSA, IB, NTFS, SCSI (qla2xxx) and the cris architecture update.
