What are the plans regarding 2.6 ?

Yesterday, I installed a HP Proliant DL240, with Broadcom Gigabit
Ethernet controllers....2.6.7 tg3 module does not seem to support
these while I've been told that 2.6.8 does.

So, at least regarding such (quite widespread?) machines, I would
support the use of 2.6.8.

PS : this machine installed well with 2.4.26, however, so I'm later
able to switch to 2.6.8 by just waiting it to enter sarge.
