    Why does this could happen? Do you agree with me that when 2.6.9 is
    released, all future versions should be based on 2.6.9? Or it's a BK
    issue I don't know?

    Ok, I understand the problem. But isn't it possible to avoid
    releasing some 2.6.8.x version after 2.6.9? I mean, I'm not
    understanding why this could happen.

    Ps: sorry if this question is silly, but I didn't get the point why could be released after 2.6.9.
