    SubjectRelease of 2.4.21
    Hi,

    how about releasing 2.4.21 with the ptrace()-fix applied immediately
    like it has been done with 2.2.25?

    I think it's a serious bug and therefore it's time for a security-update.

    If you think of ISC bind, PHP, sendmail or other software a new release
    follows right after the availability of the patch. I'd like Linux
    (and glibc as well) to do the same. You cannot call 2.4.20 a stable kernel
    with such a bug, so as a leader of the 2.4.x-series you cannot call the
    whole branch "stable".

    World needs to update, best way to enforce is by a new release.
