Linux 2.2.20pre3

Author: JT Smith

"Linux 2.2 is now firmly into maintenance state. Patches for neat new ideas
belong in 2.4. Generally new drivers belong in 2.4 (possibly in 2.2 as well
after 2.4 shows them stable). Expect me to be very picky on changes to the
core code now."

Linux 2.2 is now firmly into maintenance state. Patches for neat new ideas
belong in 2.4. Generally new drivers belong in 2.4 (possibly in 2.2 as well
after 2.4 shows them stable). Expect me to be very picky on changes to the
core code now.
