I have bumped up the CVS version to 2.2.15, skipping 2.2.14, due to
the possible confusion cause by the bugs in the ARM porters.
Note: I haven't heard *one* *word* from ARM guys since I got that one
patch months ago. No patches, no communication. They are succeeding
at pissing me off.
FYI, I do allow porters to do releases on their own. I simply require
that they annouce that to the list, that they tag the sources and burn
the changelog with their name and the date, and other pretty much
basic stuff that one should do for release mgmt.
So anyhow, just a heads up -- the next boot-floppies will be 2.2.15;
2.2.14 is to be avoided.
