It's going to be a few more days late.  I'm at OLS, have yet to finish
writing my keynote I'm giving in a day or so, and rumor has it, the .7
patches I sent out have some "issues"...

So I don't know when 2.6.17 is going "stable" for us yet, but you might
want to hold off till .7 comes out.  Sometime early next week probably.

I can poke at it after OSCON and help out.  SLES 10 work is pretty much
finished for me now (that sucked me away from Gentoo work, sorry).

Oh, also, some stuff that affected us came up at the kernel summit with
regards to how we should track our kernel bugs.  I'll write it up in a
bit...

thanks,
