I think I'm going to go ahead with the patch and drop the macros.
Which you did afaics, and that is totally fine; if it really would have
bothered me I'd had chosen different words in my earlier message ;-)
I don't mean to inconvenience you, but it has little value
From a Fedora standpoint, the stable RC windows are far too short to
actually do anything with, given that they are typically 2-3 days and
we wouldn't submit that as an update in bodhi anyway. I would think
building them in the vanilla repo would run into similar issues, in
that by the time it was built and anyone tried it, the stable release
Yeah, I have thought about that myself, but I still think it makes
sense. My rough plan is to automatically kick building rc kernels, so it
shouldn't take to long from release upstream till it it's in reach of
I really appreciate the vanilla repos, so hopefully this isn't a
issue for you. I'd like to see those continue on as you find time, etc.
Thanks and don't worry, I think I have enough things automated/scripted
