After a kernel version is released, the next version will undergo a two-week patch merge cycle, and then close the merge window and enter the pre-release testing phase. Linux author Linus Torvalds has just released the first RC release of Linux 6.1, and he sharesurges kernel developers not to submit patches before the deadline. He said the merge cycle was two weeks to give him more time to check, not to have them rush the patch to him on the Friday of the second week. Writing essays all night before a deadline is something high school students do, and should be phased out after high school.
