In order to second this statement, I'm (re-)announcing that I'm going
to take over 2.6.32 maintenance at a much slower pace, similar to the
2.6.27 branch (which also continues). In short, this means that while
critical fixes might cause a quick release, non-critical ones will wait
longer before being backported.

If you need quick fixes, you need 3.0. If you can't reboot your servers
often enough to be concerned by delayed fixes, you might support sticking
to 2.6.32 for a while.
