Linux 3.8 is NOT a longterm kernel

view story

http://www.linuxfoundation.org – I said this last week on Google+ when I was at a conference, and needed to get it out there quickly, but as I keep getting emails and other queries about this, I might as make it "official" here. For no other reason that it provides a single place for me to point people at. Anyway, I would like to announce that the 3.8 Linux kernel series is NOT going to be a longterm stable kernel release. I will NOT be maintaining it for long time, and in fact, will stop maintaining it right after the 3.9 kernel is released. The 3.0 and 3.4 kernel releases are both longterm, and both are going to be mainta (General)
