,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Staging tree (or just "staging" from now on) is used to hold 
| stand-alone drivers and filesystems that are not ready to be merged into the 
| main portion of the Linux kernel tree at this point in time for various 
| technical reasons. It is contained within the main Linux kernel tree so that 
| users can get access to the drivers much easier than before, and to provide a 
| common place for the development to happen, resolving the "hundreds of  
| different download sites" problem that most out-of-tree drivers have had in

| released by Linus Torvalds will take more than another two weeks to complete.

| get a wider range of testing, and to allow for other members of the
| community to help with the development of these features for the
| eventual inclusion into the main kernel tree.
