As long as 2.6.0 is not rock solid (maybe around 2.6.13, as with 2.2 and 
2.4?), 2.4 will remain the most important line and will run on most of my 
servers. This means that 2.4 will be well supported as long as it is needed 
(just think of 2.2 support still being there in 1.2.2, after two years of 

New features are currently developed and first tested on 2.4.23, then they get 
ported to 2.6.0 and tested there. This will change to 2.6 first in the near 
future. Since most of the code is shared for all kernel versions, this is not 
likely to cause any problems.

Instead, the code quality for 2.6 is expected to rise, because I simply test 
it a lot more. OTOH, the 2.4 parts are rock solid, so there is not much to go 
wrong, and it is still running on really many test systems.
