Year 2020, Round 40

Yesterday, 23 June 2020, from 07:13 to 24:00 EDT, no new messages were posted to the Linux Kernel Archive, at least not at the URL I use and I checked several times throughout the day.
Posting resumed after midnight, EDT, last night.
Another round of updates has been announced and a second series of release candiates has already been made available for testing. They are scheduled for release on Friday, 26 June 2020, at approximately 06:00, GMT. As usual, they may be availabe sometime the day before, if not later today.

5.7.6-rc2, will have 474 patches, http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...6.3/00075.html

5.4.49-rc2, will have 311 patches, http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...6.3/00074.html

4.19.130-rc2, will have 203 patches, http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...6.3/00073.html

4.14.186-rc2, will have 135 patches, http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...6.3/00072.html

One of the regular testers has already reported problems with 4.14.186-rc2.
