Poll: linux-ck package update rate

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
*ARCH configs
*CK patches (from Con Kolivas)

Optional components of the PKG
*BFQ patches (from Paolo Valente)

Some history:
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.

Re: Poll: linux-ck package update rate

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! big_smile

Re: Poll: linux-ck package update rate

They don't have public available data for some reason.  114 replies so far:

Seems like the users are split into thirds on this issue hmm

Re: Poll: linux-ck package update rate

Ah, love it.  Opinions are split more or less into thirds.  So any action I take will piss off 2/3rds of the group sad

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 wink
