Both naming schemes have their advantages, but I see more disadvantages with using the 2.6.x.y naming scheme in gentoo-sources than I see advantages (primarily the reason Daniel stated above). I suggest we keep the current naming scheme for gentoo-sources, as it seems most correct. Regards, Brix -- Henrik Brix Andersen <brix@g.o> Gentoo Metadistribution | Mobile computing herd
