Maybe it is time to check in on this?

I just noticed that this is now over a year since the last 2.6.34
release, which lags the last 2.6.32 release by about five months. I am
asking because someone just queried me privately about the status of
2.6.34. I'm worrying if people think that security patches are still
being backported if in fact they aren't.
