2.4.x and 2.6.x are stable. 2.5.x is unstable. You'll be fine with 2.6.7

Since there aren't plans for a 2.7.* kernel right now, is there any convention on which of the 2.6.* kernels will be for development?

The -rc (release candidate) kernels are/were for testing. So the 2.6.8-rc4 was a test kernel for 2.6.8. But 2.6.8 had this NFS Oops, so now we have this 2.6.8.1 which would have been 2.6.9-rc1 a few weeks ago?
