Well, but are we really ready to lose the relative stability of the 2.6.13
packages now and redo all the patch triaging and config file fixing ? I am
perosnally strongly in favour of going with 2.6.14-rc4 (in a 188.8.131.52-1
package), but we need at least to rework on the patches to do that. I will not
be able to do that, except for powerpc, and i see nobody prepared to do it,
unless you and waldi just volunteered to do this before monday :)
