In fact, it was Tigran Aivazian who already mentioned 2.4.0-test1 (e.g.
some hours ago - even without a "spoiler" warning... ;-)
Now the poor kernel.org people to fix their scripts again. "finger
@finger.kernel.org" still gives:
The latest stable version of the Linux kernel is: 2.2.15
The latest beta version of the Linux kernel is: 2.3.99-pre9
The latest prepatch (alpha) version *appears* to be: 2.3.99/10-3
Wasn't it bad enough to see 2.3.99pre9-pre5? Now we'll get
2.4.0-test2-pre1-pre4! :-) How about the idea (someone mentioned) to
release a 2.3.99 and then open a 2.3.100 tree? "2.4.0-test1" may look like
a marketing gag, and reading lkml makes me believe 2.4.0-final is still
some (a few) months away.
BTW it took quite long until the 2.4.0-test1 stuff got into the mirrors.
It appeared in the "main mirror" master.kernel.org after several hours.
That happened _after_ I read Tigran's message... It's quite annoying to
see a certain kernel version appear at master.kernel.org when Linus has
already released two more recent ones... :-) Would it be possible to speed
