The thing I am interested in is getting to pick and choose from all
patches published by the developers, rather than getting to choose from
among a small number of releases made by the developers.
In this fantasy, if developers would identify each patch as to whether
it is a "bugfix", a "securityfix" or a normal patch, then I could
choose the feature set that I required, plus all applicable bugfixes
Maybe the darcs mirror of the Linux kernel will evolve into something
like that, but currently I'm waiting until the timestamp screwup is
fixed before I build and run a kernel from that repo!
