    SubjectLinux 2.6.39
    So it's delayed a few days, and I really was struggling with the
    decision of whether I wanted to cut a final release at all: it could
    easily have made more sense to just do an -rc8. However, since I'm
    going to be at LinuxCon Japan in two weeks, the choice for me ended up
    whether I should just release, or drag it out *three* more weeks, or
    have some really messy merge window with a break in between.

    None of those choices really looked all that great. There were
    certainly more code changes since -rc7 than I really was all that
    happy with, and some outstanding discussion. Doing another -rc
    wouldn't necessarily have been a bad idea, but then I just decided
    that if I held off making the release, next week my timing choices
    would have been even worse.

    So there it is. The one thing that pushed me over the edge is that
    this release window has been fairly "easy". -rc2 was calm, -rc3 was
    _really_ calm, and -rc7 was tiny. And while this has more commits than
    -rc7 had, I didn't feel like that changed the overall picture much: we
    really did have much less churn after the merge window closed than we
    usually do. Which actually makes me pretty happy about the state of

    (Just to put that "calm after the merge window" in quantitative
    numbers: doing some git statistics, we have fewer commits after -rc1
    than any of the last ten releases).

    As to the merge window for 2.6.40 (which is obviously open now):
    because of the delay, the normal 14 days would be with the last two
    days when I'm already in Japan. Which is certainly not unthinkable
    (I'll have my laptop and access to wifi, and could do some final
    tweaks that way even if I wouldn't want to do a bigger portion of a
    merge window while traveling). But I do want to warn that if I get the
    feeling that I've merged "enough", I might just make it easier for
    myself and cut it two days short and release just before I leave on
    Memorial day (which for the non-US based of you is May 30th this

    Having a slightly shorter (and actually smaller, not just more
    hurried) merge window and release cycle for 2.6.40 might not be a
    horrible fate. Of course, I just know that you're all actively trying
    to sabotage that dream of mine.

    But I can still dream, can't I?
