    Of course, Linus has expressed interest in getting more frequent
    code-freezes, which would mean more frequent "stable" releases. There
    isn't really a *need* to have more than 99 levels between stable

    Basically, I think we should

    a) start with a stable kernel
    b) decide which features go into the next stable kernel
    c) work these into a development tree
    d) get it stable
    e) make a new stable release

    in the meantime, those unfortunate souls who don't get their features in
    at point b) would have to work on it separately, and if they have a
    nice, almost-there patch at point e), they will be ahead in the line
    when point b) recurs.

    If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
