It would be nice to see more progress CLang builds of the kernel.
Just a thought, the tools in the LLVM/CLang suite would help strengthen up the kernel. Beyond that we might see real developer productivity improvements.
That was just my thought, I calculated it, most kernel releases took around 2 months + a week except 3.13 which took a week longer, 3.12 took even only 2 months.

I am no fedora expert, but for stable releases they dont need a month to update their releases a month, they belive that they cant compete in bugfixing with the big kernel team, so they ship very early compared to most other distros the newer kernels.
Ok I googled it, they did release Fedora 20 with kernel 3.11 even 3.12 was out 1.5 months. So they like to use old kernels for releases just to upgrade it on every machine in the first week. Makes not much sense to me, but ok maybe its better to be able to boot the installer on higher percentage of the machines and then after the first update thye break instead of the installer does not boot.
Or they need 2 months to update their installer to be run on the new kernel? Again makes not much sense for me, but that does not matter... they seem to stick with older kernels for release.
Except they changed their policies or the 3.16 kernel or 3.16 is not compatible with the newest mesa version they want to ship, or they have a few weeks more delay, they will most likely stick to 3.16. Thats btw more important question which mesa version do they ship because they dont update mesa inbetween releases.
Btw when is 3.16 comming to fc20, thought the other kernels came few weeks after release.
