I for one test all of David's pre-* patches and I appreciate the work that
he (and others) are putting into this. However, there was a call to put
2.0.* into maintainance mode; so, just when do the 'enhancements' stop and
the bug fixes start? There was also some wild talk of a Linux Maintainance
Program - any movement on that? I volunteer my services both for Intel
and for Alpha for this if it helps get a nice stable 2.0.3x kernel real soon
