Hmm. We had a few issues come up the past week, but nothing that is really impacting the release schedule.
So here's rc7, and I still expect this to the the last rc, although the best-laid plans of mice and men..
rc7 is pretty small, with most of the changes in drivers and architecture as usual. That said, this time "most" is only _just_ true, we have enough other changes that drivers and arch fixes is only about 60% of the patch. There's header files, VM, networking, core kernel, documentation, scripts..
A mixed bag, in other words, but all pretty small fixes. You can scan the shortlog, nothing stands out to me right now.
