Oh, and it looks like mirroring from master.kernel.org is being very
slow, possibly at least partly because the conversion to
xv-compression seems to be going on (who knows - there's obviously a
script going over all the public files recompressing them from gz to
xz, but it may be some kind of dry-run and not final).

And I may also have managed to hit the weekly rsync "check
_everything_" window too. So rsync likely isn't just checking and
syncing new files, but checksumming every single file that gets
mirrored out and re-verifying it.

End result: it looks like git.kernel.org and the ftp mirrors are going
to take hours to update. So if you don't see 2.6.38-rc1 yet, and you
don't have an account on kernel.org and can fetch it directly from
master, don't worry. It will mirror out eventually, but it's going to
take some time.

Sit back, relax, and sip some foofy drink. It will all work out in the end.

Linus
