Submission + - Is the Stable Linux Kernel Moving Too Fast? (eweek.com)

darthcamaro writes: Yesterday the stable Linux 3.10 kernel was updated twice — after an error was made forcing a quick re-issue. "What happened was that a patch that was reported to be broken during the RC [release candidate] review process, went into the release, because I mistakenly didn't pull it out in time," Greg Kroah-Hartman said.
The whole incident however is now sparking debate on the Linux Kernel Mailing List about the speed of stable Linux kernel releases. Are they moving too fast?
