    SubjectAnnouncement: Plans for v2.6.34-longterm
    Firstly, I'd like to thank Greg for all the past work he's done on
    juggling all these different stable releases - many people have
    reaped the benefits of them for quite some time, and it only makes
    sense to spread the loading around as it has grown significantly.

    With that in mind, it is our intention to also maintain a 2.6.34
    longterm tree. Jason and I work at Wind River, which already has
    released products based on v2.6.34, and as such it only makes sense
    to have a public long-term tree that others who are also based on
    2.6.34 can make use of.

    I've already done an end-to-end audit of the current 2.6.32 longterm
    stable release, and used the list of these already "approved for stable"
    patches on v2.6.32 to identify 260 upstream commits that are applicable,
    but not yet present in the last 2.6.34.7 stable release.

    A candidate tree for 2.6.34.8 with the above 260 commits applied to
    it is available now for review/testing at:

    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulg/linux-2.6.34.y.git

    Note that there are no additional "non-stable" commits applied to this
    tree. It is purely commits that are already in use in a stable release.
    The next step will be to audit the 35-stable for appropriate content.

    This tree is currently undergoing internal testing at WR on various
    x86[64], ARM, MIPS and PowerPC targets, but of course any additional
    testing and feedback is most welcome. If anyone is interested in the
    audit data, I can send folks details on that too.

    Just as with Andi's longterm tree, the final details of where these
    will be finally located on kernel.org and so forth remains to be worked
    out and will be announced at a later date as things are finalized.

    Paul.
