    Default Linux 2.6.23-rc2 "Diseased" Kernel

    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.23-rc2 "Diseased" Kernel

    The Linux 2.6.23-rc2 kernel has been released onto kernel mirrors. This second release candidate introduces some new merges with 250 people contributing patches, but 2.6.23-rc2 is bigger than it should be and it's late as well.

    i don't care about deadlines in kernel development. i suppose nobody really does, because it's the stability that's the most important.


    kernel is a big project. it needs carful testing. besides there were a lot of merges from -mm and various other contributors, so i won't be surprised to see it late this time, even though i can't wait to see cfs in action :]

    There will be 2.6.21, 2.6.22, and 2.6.23 kernel tests at Phoronix next week.

    reiser4 still needs some work to be included - there still are reports various cases of dissappearing directories, or corrupt files. and too many people would go for that fs if it were included as-is.

    which leaves me wondering - how come ext4 made it into the kernel already?
