Decision on whether to use 2.6.24 or 2.6.23 for Hardy 8.04 LTS release. Decision will be based on:

Changes in upstream


Reasons for 2.6.24:

Reasons for 2.6.23:

Use Cases

Booting your computer


That 2.6.24 will be released in time for us to stabilize. Based on past release schedules, we expect 2.6.24 to be released mid to late Jan. Latest expectation is around start of Feb.


Using 2.6.23, the kernel source would be immediately based on released source. Using 2.6.24, we would follow upstream as we have before, rebasing on a scheduled basis.

Test/Demo Plan

We ought to have one of every wireless chipset that is supported in main line kernel.

Outstanding Issues

Release schedule depends on this decision.
