Re:What scheme *does* the Linux kernel use then?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 14, 2005 04:27 PM
OK, the reason why there has not been a odd numbered Kernel since the release of 2.6 is because the 2.7 branch has not been opened yet. Linus is going with the world in this, that the 2.6 series is up to par where it should be, and that if it is working fine, why open up the development branch.

Thanks,
Alan
