Even with inheritence, since there have been f20 kernel builds it wouldn't
I think having the same style numbering for all of the kernels has some
visual appeal. It feels odd (to me) looking at both rawhide kernel versions
and released kernel versions currently. So if it isn't extra work, I
have a preference for consistant naming.
The other option would be not to use Yxx numbering for development kernels
and make sure that rawhide and branched get builds at the same time. The
next git bump will be enough to make the use of 301 for f19 once
When we had discussed this before, we said that rawhide builds would
stay with 1. The reasoning behind this was to ensure that people who
installed rawhide builds to get support for some new feature or device
could easily move to their branch once that kernel was released.
Generally speaking rawhide stays ahead of F19 at this point simply
because of the overhead in the bodhi process for F19.
Using the 301 series for F19 is important because the whole point is
preserving an upgrade path, but yeah, I supposed that doesn't need to
actually happen until 3.9 is released since F17 and F18 won't get 3.9
before that point. I will drop the F19 releases back to 1 until 3.9 is
out of rc.
