    That's an alternative, of course.

    But that _is_ a branch, and does need active forward- and (mainly)
    backward-porting work.

    There's nothing wrong with it per-se, but it becomes a "stabilised version
    of the kernel.org tree" or even a "production version of the kernel.org
    tree". In other words it's somewhere on the line between the mainline
    kernel.org tree and a distribution. How far along that line should it
    be positioned?
