Perhaps we should be clear and simple about what potential testers
should be running at any given point in time. With -mm, linux-next,
linux-2.6, etc, as a newcomer I find it difficult to know where my
testing time and energy is best directed.

Is linux-next the right thing to be running at this point? Is there a
need for testing in a particular tree (netdev, x86, etc)?

Cheers,
Dan
