That whole premise is flawed. The *rule* for the stable tree is that things don't get merged into the stable tree unless they are fixed in mainline already.

If Adrian cares to note which two regressions he had in mind in his previous post <20070426125802.GL3468@xxxxxxxxx> or what the exact timing was I'll let him continue this.

We had that problem in the 2.4.x / 2.5.x split. I think we learnt our lesson.

I'd love to think that's the case.
