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

"Or not "entirely". As too many people pointed out, I had been somewhat less than careful, and the 2.6.32-rc1 release actually called itself -rc2 in the Makefile. As a result, I don't want to make a 2.6.32-rc2 release, since any bug-reports etc would then be met with the inevitable confusion: do you mean -rc2 as in the Makefile (ie really -rc1) or -rc2 as in the tagged release.

"So I'm avoiding that confusion entirely, and consider the -rc1 release to have also been -rc2, and thus a week later we're now at -rc3. And let's hope that I won't have that particular "senior moment" any more. Although I'm sure I can screw up releases some other way."
