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.
