SubjectLinux 2.6.38-rc2
So it's been distinctly less than a week, but I'm leaving for LCA
tomorrow, so I wanted to (a) get an -rc out before that and (b)
verify that the laptop I'm taking with me is all prepared with the
proper signing keys and silly release scripts etc. So if you see
something odd in the release, holler, and I can still hopefully make
sure I fix up whatever script/config issue I have.

Anyway. -rc2 is out there, and the only reason it's reasonably sized
is that it was a short -rc2 - I think a few of the pull requests I got
were a bit larger than I would have been happy with. And I might as
well warn people that because the laptop I'm bringing with me is
pitifully slow, I'm also planning on going into "anal" mode, and not
even bother pulling from trees unless they are clearly -rc material.
IOW, don't try to push large pushes on me. I won't take them, and they
can wait for 39.

(Which is just as well - we definitely have enough excitement in 38 already)

Of course, it's entirely possible that things will be quiet due to a
number of other maintainers presumably also being at LCA, so hopefully
that "Linus is going into anal mode" warning was totally superfluous.

So give it a good testing,
