Re: 2.6.31 kernels
2.6.29 was in Sid for a while earlier this year. Obviously the kernel
team has their reasons why the 2.6.31 kernel isn't in Sid ATM, but I
doubt the "31" of the current stable version is the reason.
Under the old kernel development method prior to the 2.6 series the
so-called "odd" kernels (1.1, 1.3, 2.1, 2.3, and 2.5) were not routinely
included in Debian as a stable candidate. The third set of digits
(0-xx) don't have a bearing on Debian inclusion beyond simple
suitability for use/bugs, etc. At least that's how I understand it.
