In fact my last edit was adding the "Linux" lower down - partly just
to dilute the concentration of references to Debian.  I didn't add it
in the first line because the team really is called the "Debian
Kernel" team.

"3.2.y" is strange, I'll agree, but it's the name of the git tree as
mentioned in the postings... 3.2 would certainly be clearer if it's
true, but I've been treading carefully.

It doesn't need to explain *everything*, because after all it's
pointing at a source that does that, but I suppose we could insert
some extra hint in that direction.  I'll try:

 [...] about the additional features not featured in mainline 3.2 that will
 be included in the Linux kernel to be shipped with the next Debian stable.

JBR   A long time ago this practice was followed, especially in the
      upper classes, but today even the children of the lower classes
      perform no executions, and this is extreme negligence.
