It even isn't called at linux-kernel-announce, except the latest stable
kernel.
So you have to read LKML, or follow the lwn.net news to track the
older stable kernel. Or always guessing: when there is a release of the
newer stable kernel (this is announced in linux-kernel-announce) then
there might be a release of the older one aswell...

I'm one of that guys, having a server and one firewall and feeling
much better with a small optimized own-built kernel for that machines.
And both just work with this .27 branch, why should I change it to
2.6.30.y?
I don't need any of the new features and it won't be faster with 2.6.30 or
something else...
