I wanted to solicit some feedback from the users of the linux-ck kernel package and of course from users using the pre-compiled binaries from the unofficial llinux-ck repo. How rapid a tempo do you prefer for the linux-ck package/what are the minumum required patchsets for me to bump the release up?
As they are currently defined:
Required components of the PKG
*Upstream kernel source
*CK patches (from Con Kolivas)
Optional components of the PKG
*BFQ patches (from Paolo Valente)
When 2.6.x went to 3.0.x, it took 5-6 weeks for Paolo to update the BFQ patchset for the 3.0 tree.
When 3.1 just went to 3.2 we got a partial ck1 patchset. CK said sometime next week for the full ck1 patchset and Paolo said the same for BFQ, so let's say 2 weeks there.
I found a free survey site to keep track of responses. Please do not vote here in this forum.
Link to survey and thanks for your opinions.
EDIT: Link to the results.

Been using the Intel Core kernel and have had great success. I have been a little disappointed with the update to the latest few kernel due to the lack of the patches.
From my point of view the reason I used this kernel is the tweaks it has. No point in using it if the Repo keeps pushing forward kernels without half the patches.
Basically what I am saying is that I would be happy to wait for all the patches before releasing a CK kernel.
Keep up the good work though mate!
Ah, love it. Opinions are split more or less into thirds. So any action I take will piss off 2/3rds of the group
Thats the danger of giving people options: the more options you offer, the larger portion of people who will be pissed off when you make a decision.
Perhaps if you chose first, then gave a poll with just that one option, everyone could feel like they got what they wanted
