This is going to be a large problem for people like me who do ports AND
src development... For instance, I have some VERY good reasons to use my own
copy of make to build ports right now (how am I going to check that my make
patches actually work otherwise ?)
Actually, what this means is that, pretty soon, you
are going to receive ALL patches I make to repair stuff and write new ports,
as my only test machine is inevitably going to drift away from 2.6.
Either that, or you give me another test machine. Considering the physical
space I have available for it, this HAS to be a laptop.
