I don't see any reason why this should change now. This way we get
upstream improvements (new/better hardware support) and bugfixes
without having to wait/update to the the next release.

I like the older releases keeping the older versions. I have to run the older version because of a network lockup which rawhide kernels exhibit.
kernel- works fine at .23
kernel-2.6.24-0.167.rc8.git4.fc9 introduces bugs in .24

I'd rather have newer programs and a stabilized kernel. The drivers that I need are available and work excellent before .24 introduced bugs. Openoffice.org for rawhide loads quicker and works without problems. Advancements in programs is more important to me than adding and deleting support for kernel level devices.

fc9 kernels hang at
1161 ?        D<     0:00 /sbin/modprobe

Whatever that is.


You know, there is nothing holding you back from not updating kernels, even if .24 versions are backported and pushed out for f7/f8. The kernels that have been built before it are available, and should continue to be until EOL (well, forever actually if you just keep a copy for yourself).
