I'm also in favor of seeing an article like this drafted for the Magazine,
particularly if we could conveniently time it for the approximate time when the F23 bugs
are closed for EOL. It also wouldn't hurt to get the usual F23 EOL article out on the
Magazine too (we can bring this up during our meeting today).
Do we know of anyone who could write this who might be able to explain this deeper?
If nobody has thrown their hat in the ring yet, I'd like to volunteer. If
you're okay with it, I'd also like to talk a little bit about why the
kernel does something very similar for every major release (4.x -> 4.y).
I can also do that as a separate follow on article if that gets too long.
