How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter


It's been a fairly normal week, although I can't say that the rc's
have exactly started shrinking yet. No, the rc's haven't been all that
big to begin with this release cycle, and things have been fairly
calm, but I'd be happier if we didn't have noise in raid5 and
device-mapper at this stage.

That said, it's not like rc6 is a big rc, and things look normal. This
is about half drivers (mainly scsi target, networking, and graphics,
plus the aforementioned raid and dm changes, with other random fixes).
The rest is fairly evenly split between architecture updates (alpha
stands out), filesystem updates (xfs, cifs and overlayfs) and "misc"
(networking, turbostat tool update, documentation).

Most of the fixes are really quite small. Shortlog appended, skimming
it gives a flavor of the kinds of things we have here.
