Arch Linux maintainer of the –beyond Linux kernel version announces that he won’t be a maintainer of that package anymore:
“I’m sick of the kernel. It’s crap. Every release breaks something new, and every release is as poorly tested as the last. (not you tpowa [another maintainer], I mean upstream — you do a good job with what you’re given by them). The stable tree, isn’t stable. I want something that works and won’t break.
James, hats off to you!
That’s what I like! People who are not afraid to tell the truth. THESE are the people who can bring real value to a community. And the reality of the matter is, that no, the Linux main kernel is NOT properly tested before release.
