"Ok, it's been only 6 days, but as noted earlier I'm going to be traveling starting tomorrow, and I wanted to make the -rc2 release before I left."
"That said, I think -rc2 is in fairly good shape, and I've been trying to fairly aggressively revert things that caused problems (and sometimes things that were only *suspected* to be the cause of problems)." - said Linus Torvalds in the email announcement.
