We depend on the experts (the kernel team) for the information we need
in order to make good decisions -- or better, to help *you* make good

Based on this thread and other discussions, I understand that the
current 2.4.26 packages are unsuitable for release because of security
bugs, and it looks like the new 2.4.27 packages are closer to being in a
releasable state than 2.4.26 is.  Compared with this, the NEW delays are
minor; I'm happy to stick out my neck to get the 2.4.27 packages
processed faster if I know the effort won't be wasted.
