How is that? Adding a feature to a later version does not make the
earlier version obsolete, especially when the later version has not
yet been released. Linux 2.5 has a bunch of new features that 2.4
doesn't have. Does that mean 2.4 is obsolete? Does it mean Linus
shouldn't release any more patches for 2.4 because it takes up time
from 2.5? Does it mean developers should refuse to discuss any issues
with 2.4?
