Approx release schedule for kernel 2.6.31 into Fedora 10/11/12

Hi -

I have a quick timing question. I recently purchased a Drobo in which my configuration requires >2Tb LUNs. I understand that kernel version 2.6.31 addresses some of the limitations when using the Drobo hardware. As of today, the following appears in the kernel package status page:
Release  	Latest Released Version  	Version in Testing
-----------  	------------------------------ 	----------------------
Rawhide 	2.6.31-0.199.rc8.git2.fc12 	Not Applicable
Fedora 12 	2.6.31-0.199.rc8.git2.fc12 	None
Fedora 11
Fedora 10
I am currently using FC10 with plans to upgrade to FC11 when FC12 arrives, but was curious as to how often kernel milestone releases generally make their way into the FC release (and whether FC11 is expected to run off the 2.6.31 kernel).

Also related to Drobo implementation, is GPT support enabled by default in Fedora (presumably it is)? How may I check this?

Not sure if I understand you right, kernel 2.6.31 is already in F12 Alpha. I verified this according to the packages on one of the mirrors:

And AFAIK 2.6.31 will make it into F12 release.

I should have taken out the FC12 in the title (my fault - created the thread, then looked at the kernel release status). I was looking at the timing of when the 2.6.31 kernel would make it into FC 10/FC 11.

I am almost sure that 2.6.31 will not make it into F10, since that will go out of support some time after F12 has been released (or am I wrong?) and I even doubt that it will make it into F11, since that is always kind of a risk.

You are likely correct about FC10 (I was hoping that 2.6.31 might find its way in before the FC12 release -- it is a bit unrealistic). I would be a little surprised if 2.6.31 didn't find its way into FC11, though (and unfortunate as we would need to accelerate our upgrades and testing of the new Core).

Thanks for the info!

Yes, and the fc12 alpha ate itself when I tried to open system monitor. By the way, anyone have an aspire one netbook that hangs every so often on fc11? It ran v10 just fine. It seems to have something to do with the wifi drivers. Before it happens, the system always either disconnects and notifies me, or when I look to see what networks are available it displays unrenderable symbols first. I NEED wireless. And don't ask for a full yum update, there are enough updates to fill my /boot partition 18 times over.

2.6.31 may find its way into FC11 but it would deff not find its way in FC10 unless you download the Vanilla Kernel when released an configure it yourself manually for your hardware
