Bug#953680: linux-image-5.5.0-rc5-amd64: When will the stable version of 5.5 reach the repos?

Source: linux
Followup-For: Bug #953680

I just got the email that notified me that this bug report was closed because
kernel 5.5 (5.5.13 in fact) has reached unstable.
Kernel 5.6 was released yesterday from upstream, so isn't it a bit late now for

Normally, I install it as soon as it hits the repo, then I let dkms fail in
building nvidia legacy 340 for it, so I file a bug report for the driver, along
with the needed patches. I think I will skip it this time and wait for 5.6,

On top of that, I think that you should have built at least one minor update of
5.4 all that time, because the 5.4 is now at 5.4.28, 9 minor versions ahead
than the one on the repo.
