The intention of this email is to clarify my position on [the] 2.4.x future.

2.6 is becoming more stable each day, and we will hopefully see a 2.6.0 release during this month or January.

Having that mentioned, I [intend] to:

  • Fix pending problems which might required more intrusive modifications during 2.4.24. New drivers will be accepted during this period (for example, Cyclades PC300 driver, input userlevel driver support, or other sane driver which might come up)
  • From 2.4.25 on, fix only critical/security problems
