Mhm, I'm not a kernel developer but I think that people how need the newest
kernel can also use a patch. In this case 2.4.19 pre1 which doesn't need much

So I see no Problem.
I think Marcelo does his work well.

If anyone needs a new kernel, your dist will have well tested working kernels
for your arch.

If a person has a special arch, he must know how to patch a kernel.

So there is no need to make special things for __any__ architecture.
The final release is fine and very usefull, but if you have problems with it,
you should be able to use the pre versions from the next release.

I only write this, because I don't like it that people say: The 2.4.x is too
buggy, you miss some of the other archs, I need a wallpaper in the background
of my xconfig.

I am a user, I make mistakes with the configuration of the kernel.
I use new kernel, but if something goes wrong I know that it's my fault,
because I don't want to wait.

Mhm, should be enough ;)

thanks for all people who work on Open Source products

have fun
