    SubjectLinux v2.6.16

    Ok, it's being mirrored out right now, the git tree should already be all
    there, the tar-file and patches are still uploading.

    Not a lot of changes since -rc6, but there's various random one-liners
    here and there (a number of Coverity bugs found, for example), and there
    are small MIPS and PowerPC updates.

    Appended is the shortlog from 2.6.16-rc6, the full log (from 2.6.15) is on
    the web/ftp-sites.

    It looks like both Fedora and SuSE end up using a kernel that is pretty
    close to this 2.6.16 release, so let's all hope it's good. Give it a good
    testing, please,
