Kernel: vanilla-sources maintenance

In the last time I’m helping the kernel team with the bump of vanilla-sources.

It does not take much time because I’m doing it with a script. So, personally, I will continue to bump the following series:

  • 2.6.32
  • 3.0
  • 3.2
  • 3.4
  • 3.6

I will remove the EOL series as soon as possible.

If you have requests, please let me know.

    Nice work. I am using the vanilla-sources and updates are fast. Thanks for your contribution to gentoo :)

    Best regards

    Do you consider to stabilize longterm kernels independently from gentoo-sources?

    Not stressing or anything, but what happened with the script. 3.9.5 is not in gentoo vanilla tree yet, has been in gentoo-sources for days?

    best regards

      There was a misunderstanding, I’m bumping with a script, but I have no script that checks if there are new versions available. From time to time I’m checking the upstream website…yes I could use a script to check if there are new versions, or use directly euscan…but I guess there is no hurry.
      In the future if you need immediately a version bump, feel free to open a bug on our bugzilla.
