    If they're being released for people to test and play with, I'd make
    them aginst mainline or 2.6.27.

    If they're being released for review-and-merge then yes, linux-next
    would be better, but that's a fairly minor merging matter. A much bigger
    task is getting them reviewed and generally getting a bit of
    momentum/interest/enthusiasm/etc.
