It _really_ depends on your mood. If you say you've run it for over a year on
a production server, go for it :). What I tried to say, is that I wouldn't
risk it on my production servers to run 2.1whatever. I can't make that
decision for you, since you're the sysadmin.

You're right that 2.1 has been pretty stable for the last half year, but it
also had its rougher times (as in ooops'ing on vserver startup). That's one
thing I can't risk.

TIA, Christian
