[jamiebennett 2010-06-01: A single kernel version will be required if we are to have fulfill our goal of having a single kernel source tree to build all our ARM kernels from.
[asac 22 Jun 10]: we are past feature definition freeze and this spec is still in state drafting; however, it seems to have quite an extensive wiki spec and also some work items? Am I right to assume this is ready for review? Also, I retargetted the first few work items for maverick-alpha-3; if that was wrong please fix and check that the overall milestone chosen by me is ok. Thanks!
