Linus blesses 2.6.14, opens 2-week window on 2.6.15 merges

Linus Torvalds has given his blessing at last to kernel 2.6.14, following delays caused by "false alarms," the Linux creator said in a message to the Linux kernel mailing list today. Torvalds plans to accept code merges for two weeks only, before freezing features for a 2.6.15 release candidate phase.

According to KernelTrap.org, Torvalds and other Linux developers at the Linux Kernel Summit in Toronto this summer agreed to merge new code for only the first two weeks following each release. In his 2.6.14 announcement note, Torvalds wrote, "Let's try the two-week merge window thing again; I think it worked pretty well despite the delays, and hopefully it will work even better this time around."
