"'It's been a week, and I promised to be a good boy and try to
follow my release rules, so here is the next -rc,' Linus Torvalds
said, announcing the 2.6.24-rc5 kernel. He noted:
"'Things _have_ slowed down, although I'd obviously be lying if
I said we've got all the regressions handled and under control.
They are being worked on, and the list is shrinking, but at a
guess, we're definitely not going to have a final 2.6.24 out before
xmas unless santa puts some more elves to work on those
regressions. So any elves out there--please keep working...'"
