All Kernel:* repos _are_ maintained. Kernel:HEAD might be broken
sometimes, but it's usually fixed quickly once when recognized. Not
much different from the normal packages.
But I was asking about maintenance of the
kernel in factory not in Kernel:*
I do wonder, however, whether you got actually a submission from
Kernel:HEAD to FACTORY. That is, is Kernel:HEAD automatically
submitted, or did you take it manually?
The latest (automatic) submission is from 2014-06-06, so I submitted it
myself as request 238317.
If that will go away in Kernel:stable, I'm
fine with changing.
A similar breakage can happen on Kernel:stable, too, but maybe less
likely because there are less activities there, and the code base is
supposed to be stabler.
The only drawback would be that we'll miss the integration test of the
latest Linus kernel by this change. But, if FACTORY is aimed to be
really stably usable, Kernel:stable is definitely a safer choice.
Other development projects submit late RCs too if they are confident
about it. But they actually think about if to submit or not. And that's
what I'm talking about. What I'm missing is the taking care and taking
responsibility for the factory kernel. The most important part - the
releasing to factory - is left to scripts.
