Kernel-lt and RHEL6

A recent posting [1] to our general mailing list [2] reminded us that the
linux-3.10.X branch of the kernel source code will soon be reaching end-of-life status upstream, at the Linux Kernel Archives website. [3]

As a consequence, we now have to decide which source code branch should be used to build our kernel-lt package set for RHEL6 (and its clones, CentOS 6 & Scientific Linux 6).

Remembering that our slogan is "For the community, by the community.", you are invited to take part in the discussion [4] to select the new linux source code branch that will be used to build our EL6 kernel-lt package set. That discussion has now begun on our development mailing list [5].
