2.6.17. Because of the shortened development cycle for edgy, we don't
have time to follow and test 2.6.18. Especially since we're not sure
when it will get released. Current estimates show that 2.6.18 will get
released about 6 weeks prior to edgy being released. Not really enough
time to regression test things. With 2.6.17, we are already at a stable
kernel, and the first CD release (knot-1) will be fairly solid, and give
is plenty of time to regression test.
