Why don't the full source tarballs only get put up periodically? How about
just putting up linux-2.1.(x%y).tar.bz2 where y is 10 for example? You can
then get the tarball every 10 if you are paranoid, but you have to use
patches to go up within each linux decade. I think even the paranoid may
get more comfortable with patches as a result and maybe skip the next
available tarball since patches are so much more convenient. BTW, I'm not
opposed to the .tar.gz versions being up as well, I just like bz2 myself.
An addtion could be to also put up occasional versions that appear to be
extremely successful and are suggested for use for people that want an "
extremely stable development kernel", whatever that is. <g>
