We had some instability with .29, and it was annoying enough that I've
"standardised" on 2.6.27.25 across all the new installs of our servers
(largely because that was current back when I build those packages a
couple of weeks ago) - and since I'm reinstalling everything with the
shiny new Debian Lenny personality, we're running .27 on most of our
servers now.

I'm a little cautious about .30 because of the reiserfs changes that went
in. All our customer data is on reiserfs partitions, and I want to take
it nice and slow testing it...

Er, that about covers it I think. We'll probably jump to .30 or .31 at
some point.

Oh, yeah. Bloody ipssend. If anyone from IBM is reading this, can you
please hit your software distribution people over the head with a big
fat cluebat and provide your raid management tools as a single download
somewhere that's not a self extracting windows executable floppy image or
a .iso containing a self extracting windows executable floppy image, or...
you get the picture. It's a disgrace. And while you're at it, build an
ipssend that works with kernels 2.6.28+. Thanks.
