For the new kernel took 3 days to build.

I burned a Build0908 NET CD and installed it on real hardware. I was surprised
to see a 2.6.36 kernel, but today I did a 'zypper up' and got 636 packages
including a 2.6.37 kernel. That must be closer to M4.

Be aware that openqa is still young, so do not blindly trust its results.
e.g. Build0906 was pretty much as good as 0908, but I had to fine-tune
the zypper_in test there, causing a few failures.
And RAID-installs failed to boot in both for some reason (possibly a
bug) but this is no blocker.

Even if not completely to be trusted, it is a giant step(1). Even Coolo is
trusting it. As you have noticed, I give you much credit every chance I get.

former colleagues used to go ballistic every time he saw quantum misused that
way.
