This is the start of the stable review cycle for the 2.6.18.8 release.

This will be the last release of the 2.6.18-stable series, so if there
are patches that you feel should be applied to that tree, please let me
know.

There are 18 patches in this series, all will be posted as a response to
this one. If anyone has any issues with these being applied, please let
us know. If anyone is a maintainer of the proper subsystem, and wants
to add a Signed-off-by: line to the patch, please respond with it.

These patches are sent out with a number of different people on the Cc:
line. If you wish to be a reviewer, please email XXXX@XXXXX.COM to
add your name to the list. If you want to be off the reviewer list,
also email us.

Responses should be made by Friday February 23 00:00 UTC. Anything
received after that time might be too late.

We have still some CVEish patches in our package which maybe you want to
consider adding into -stable.

[patch 00/18] 2.6.18-stable review

Post by Hugh Dicki » Sun, 25 Feb 2007 05:30:17


Sorry I'm late to the party, just climbed through 2000 mails.

I do hope you'll manage an -rc2,
I seem not the only one to notice wanted patches missing.

There's two from 2.6.19-stable that I thought Chris had agreed
for 2.6.18-stable (Linus' mincore and my read_zero_pagealigned);
two that I sent Chris cc stable for 2.6.18-stable on 4th January
(msync and powerpc current); one I know about from 2.6.19-stable
equally desirable in 2.6.18-stable (Badari's shmem_truncate); and
a new one I was waiting to appear in 2.6.21-rc1 before sending
(Tigran's extN noacl umask).

I'm reassembling the six patches against 2.6.18.8-rc1 for these
now (plus a 2.6.19-stable and a 2.6.20-stable for the latter),
will send them to Greg cc stable shortly.

I wonder whether Chris has a tree somewhere, or a mailbox,
containing further goodies which have been missed.

Hugh

[patch 00/18] 2.6.18-stable review

Post by Greg K » Wed, 07 Mar 2007 04:30:22


Why? Does anyone really use it now that 2.6.19 and 2.6.20 is out?

I don't want to do a new release as we need to catch up on the 2.6.20
issues...

And also remember, the point of the -stable tree was that we would drop
older releases after the next release came out.

thanks,

greg k-h

I know, i just referred your "Barring anything extremely serious, this will be
the last 2.6.18 based release." sentence from last stable release
announcement and some security regressions seems something to me and just
want to ping :) and of course i clearly understand your point of -stable tree
maintanence with much more up2date kernel and drop olders view.

Cheers
