We've decided to go with Linux 3.2 for the next Debian stable release,

a volunteer from Ubuntu to look after that once you've had enough of it,
but I seem to have lost the relevant mail.

I will not be handing any stable/longterm maintance over to anyone who
does not have a _lot_ of kernel community experience, so that seems to
rule out just about all Ubuntu developers at this point in time from
what I can tell.

Greg, I'd be interested to know what the criteria is for "a _lot_ of kernel community experience". We are will to put in the time and effort, and if there are things we need to do I'd like to know what they are.

As I think this will be a Debian/Ubuntu thing only, I don't know if
keeping the kernel.org version around for any length of time is really
going to help much out here, do you?
