For those of you who don't follow linux-kernel below Marcelo's posting
about the future of 2.4.  I think we should follow that for MIPS also,
so whatever new feature you still may have pending for 2.4, send it
soon - or for 2.6.

I also remind everybody that a 2.6.0 release is expect already before the
end of the year and the MIPS kernel is not exactly in the shape we'd
like it to be - time to switch to 2.6 for active development!

The intention of this email is to clarify my position on 2.4.x future.

2.6 is becoming more stable each day, and we will hopefully see a 2.6.0
release during this month or January.

Having that mentioned, I pretend to:

- Fix pending problems which might required more intrusive modifications
during 2.4.24. New drivers will be accept during this period (for example,
Cyclades PC300 driver, input userlevel driver support, or other sane
driver which might come up).

- From 2.4.25 on, fix only critical/security problems.
