OK, so tags have been renamed into "linux-2.6.x". Why not using the
same mainline name convention (v2.6.x) ?

I have another question (which is the first one in my previous email),
how can I make my working tree a kernel version 2.6.9 for example ?

And the last question related to mips git repository, why does kernel
v2.2, v2.4, v2.6 are in the same repository ? Why not seperate
different major version of the kernel in a seperate repository ?
