I would like to help with this. To do so I need to know which tasks
milestones to include in the schedule. Here is the current development
schedule for Fedora 15:
Sure, right now, we'd target 2.6.38 for F-15, which should be released
around the beginning of April.
As it stands, 2.6.37 should be released approximately mid-January, based
on us being at 2.6.36-rc3 now and the usually week and a bit between
-rc (and usually releasing at approximately -rc8.) Christmas and LCA if
Linus goes might be a bit of a delay there, but I'd gather we'll be at
It's usually a two week merge window for -rc1, and then the usual cycle,
of roughly 80 days total before the next kernel release.

What should we add for the kernel team so that important dates are known
and Fedora 15 can be well coordinated?
By mid-March we should be well on our way through the 2.6.38 cycle, I
think we'll probably stick on 2.6.37 for Alpha (depending on the exact
release date) and immediately switch to 2.6.38-rc2 in F-15 afterwards,
which should avoid us releasing an Alpha with a 'too raw' -rc1 kernel
and still give us plenty of time to clean up issues with 2.6.38-rc.
Obviously, the earlier we branch the better, and having more people test
the hell out of the kernel upstream the better.
