Since last week I'm responsible for the maintenance of the extended stable kernel 3.5, replacing Herton in this rule. Herton has been responsible for this kernel since the Ubuntu kernel team has decided to provide support for it, as it is the base kernel for the 12.10 release ("Quantal Quetzal").
Thus, this Monday I've released 22.214.171.124, which included 139 patches. The announcement is here.
This kernel is kept in a git repository ( git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/linux.git) with a couple of branches:
- master - Tracks upstream linux (from Linus)
- linux-3.5.y - The actual 3.5 stable tree
- linux-3.5.y-review - The 3.5 stable tree with patches that are under review
- linux-3.5.y-queue - The 3.5 stable tree with the patches that are currently queued for next release (after being pulled into linux-3.5.y-review branch for review).
