Users of the ELRepo Project will know that its slogan is: "For the community, by the community."
In the spirit of that slogan, a consultation has been started with respect to the kernel-ml packages for Enterprise Linux 6 --
Essentially there will be two packages sets available, based on the long-term support linux-3.0.x sources and on the current stable sources. (As of the date of this posting, linux-3.2.y)It has recently been suggested to me that the ELRepo Project should now provide a kernel-ml package set based on the long-term support linux-3.0.x series rather than the linux-2.6.39.y series. Having mulled it over for a while, it does make sense to me and so I have "smiled" at that suggestion. Before I go ahead and implement it, which will eventually result in the deprecation of the kernel-ml-2.6.39-4.2.el6.elrepo package set, I would like to hear opinions / comments from the ELRepo user-base.
Update: Having listened to our users' comments, the kernel-ml-3.0.19.el6.elrepo package set has been built and made available. This package set will be updated in line with the long-term support policy of the Linux Kernel Archives. The existing kernel-ml-2.6.39-4.2.el6.elrepo package set will remain available but its usage is now deprecated.
