Not really.

That is mostly because people are learning to submit more patches to the
-stable queue, not because of any implicit problems with the 2.6.29
kernel series that I have seen.

Yes there are, I will work on that next. But I don't see anything
"serious" in there that should be in the .28 kernel, do you?

Traditionally we've dropped the last -stable after the .2 release of the
new series, why would we change that now? We only have so much time to
do this kind of work, and maintaining 3 -stable trees is a major pain,
trust me...

However, if you wish to take over 2.6.28 and maintain it after this
release, I have no objection, just let me know.
