    It would be nice if could put somewhere on the release notes that
    Debian's 2.6.8 is actually 2.6.8.1 plus some patches. It's useful to
    note this because 2.6.8 had a major NFS-related problem which made the
    kernel guys release 2.6.8.1 right after releasing 2.6.8.

    Also, it seems that Debian 2.6.8 kernels have (or will have) the necessary
    patches to fix the CD-Writing problems people were having with 2.6.8/2.6.8.1 .

    Yeh, I know about that. But the version of the Debian packages doesnt
    show this, and the description only mentions 2.6.8. So thats what I went
    on. It would be more confusing if the release notes do not match the
    version claimed to be packaged. (So maybe the kernel maintainers should
    fix that.)

    Thats good. I expect most distros shippin 2.6.8 will apply that.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    I think not, it has been released so to avoid queueing of a NEw source.
    There are not good reasons to change that, fixes are already listed
    within changelog.
