FWIW, Alan Cox *won't* be maintaining 2.4; Marcelo Tosatti will be
instead.  He will still be maintaining a -ac tree, though.  There is a
Slashdot article on the subject at
<http://slashdot.org/articles/01/11/02/2035229.shtml>.  The linked page
is at <http://advogato.org/article/370.html> if you don't want to visit
Slashdot for some reason.
