Hi there,

kernel-2.6.16-1.2132_FC5.vs2.0.2.0.rc22.1 for example (Daniels Fedora
patched kernel) is considered reasonable stable - so if you want to
stay with 2.6.16, you could use this.

2.6.17 with VServer patches is getting support through Daniel (code)
and me (testing / using in two different production environments and
one local server which is used mainly for production and only a little
for testing) on Fedora, so this can also be consider stable as soon as
it is announced on the mailing list - so there's the main question:
Why should it be skipped?

For Fedora: What specially do you have in rc24 which is not existent
in rc22 (2.6.16 kernel)? ;-)

And though: Yes, it would be nice to have a "stable" (rc's are already
quite stable though) 2.0.2 release for 2.6.16 as well, I'm with you.
