 Hi All,

      Can anyone explain why Google chooses odd versions of Kernel
tree ?

       It is valid not to use the latest version for developments but
why always odd ones like 25 and 27.


rgds,
Gulshan

Why Google chooses odd versions of Kernel tree ?

 [gulshan.karm...@gmail.com]

2.6.25 was the most recent released kernel when we were finalizing
things for 1.0.  2.6.27 was the most recent released kernel when we
moved forward from 2.6.25. 

We need a stable tree for development, and we currently base that tree
on a released kernel (not a -rc).  We will periodically shift
development forward to the newest released kernel as baseline.

There's nothing special about odd-numbered kernel versions.

roadmap or plan  ?
