Yes. I am usually up to date on pre patches within a few hours of
their release, but then I have to play catch up to get my own patches
up to date. What I would like is the ability to see what is in the
kernel CVS tree before the pre patch is sent out so I can get
modutils/ksymoops/kdb patches ready ahead of the kernel patch release.
