9 When was it that you noticed gentoo-sources being that far behind.
10 Generally-speaking vanilla-sources and gentoo-sources tend to be
11 updated within a day or two of a new stable kernel release. Now,
12 stable keywords on gentoo-sources tends to track longterm kernels, so
13 that will be behind ~arch by a few weeks.
15 Maybe if you caught somebody on vacation I could see gentoo-sources
16 lagging a bit, or if there was some debate over whether to include
17 some patch in it...
