    I would consider 2.0.111 to be of GAMMA quality myself... it's certainly
    more stable than 2.2.0 has proven to be. ;-)

    Ulrich wanted to do a real release for a few weeks now, but you know how it
    is... all those pesky little bugs creeping up at the last minute, partly
    because there are features glibc needs to track; the vfork() mess, for
    instance -- people did end up with kernel+glibc combinations which were
    dead ends, which is a big no-no.
