[STATUS 2.5] December 11, 2002

From: Guillaume Boissiere (boissiere@adiglobal.com)
Date: Tue Dec 10 2002 - 23:33:31 EST

The stabilization work has begun. One item of interest this week
is the update to the new framebuffer/console API.
Full list is available at http://www.kernelnewbies.org/status/

Also, with more people testing different configurations, the
number of bugs in bugzilla has increased quite a big since last
week. 80 and counting.
