What about the linux kernel? I don't think we need to go quite that far,
but for me it makes sense to maintain the stable release at least until
the second beta of the next release is out, the assumption being that
the first beta will likely be too bleeding edge for a lot of users, and
likely quite buggy. Right now, we don't even have the first beta out,
so I see 3.1.2 as still very much alive and in need of support.

Yes, most of the patches I've collected have a one or two line description,
and I'm putting together a summary as well.

That would help, but I still find patches easiest to deal with, particularly
since RPM deals with them so well.
