"Must be time for an -ac tree again."
Agreed. MM plays an important role. But it is not a stable tree by any means. AC has has huge crediblity within the community for maintaining a stable tree. The problem then becomes backporting ofcourse, but that is better that the drop in kernel quality the currently occurs with major 2.6.X releases, IMHO.
I'll drink to that!
Seriously, it'd be super nice to have -ac trees again. -mm just doesn't feel the same.
yeah, i tend to agree.
