I know this is the last release, but I have gotten some complaints by
people who are confused by the numbering scheme you are using for the
Canonical stable kernel releases. Can you please use the EXTRAVERSION
field with a "-something" tag in it to differenciate from the "normal"
kernel.org stable releases?
A simple "-ubuntu" or "-canonical" or "-fuzzy_bunnies" marking would be
fine, or whatever you want to pick.
Everyone used to do this a long time ago when we had lots of different
kernel releases / trees floating around in the pre-git days, which made
things much easier to figure out where the trees came from.
