Based on the frequency of stable kernel updates lately it would certainly be quite a lot of extra work for Pat to build (let alone test) each stable kernel update. I manage to do that myself but it does seem endless at times...

The frequency of Ben's updates to 3.2 haven't been too onerous, but I agree: Greg seems to have been pushing one out every 3 days or so, of late, and that's getting a bit silly.
