So you consider a zero day update to the GA is somewhat better then
the testing the kernel would receive between beta and final?
There is an advantage to doing a zero day update in that the media is less
likely to be unusable by people if it uses a kernel that received wider
testing. If the 3.12 kernel fails, they can fall back to using 3.11 fairly
There isn't anything that requires 3.12 to go out as a zero day update. We
could wait until the release to put it in update-testing so it would get
wider testing before being pushed as an update.
