Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.5.24

Jun 21, 2002, 02:56 (10 Talkback[s])


Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Kernel.org Mirrors

Full Changelog

Hmm. I'm making ready to leave for the kernel summit and OLS, and so are
apparently other people - since I was mailbombed by various patches in the
last few days.

However, now it's too late - I'm leaving early tomorrow morning, and
anybody who left their pre-OLS sync this late is just _too_ late.  

Big sound merges, NTFS merge, IrDA, IPv6, SCSI drivers, you name it. Rusty
"it's two l's, dammit!" Russell sent in about a million of his trivial
patches, hopefully they got somewhat correctly attributed and merged.

Oh, and IDE 93 should undo the damage of IDE 92.

See you in a week,
