In addition, when Linus releases a new kernel (2.6.23), the net-2.6.24 
becomes net-2.6 (the old one ceases to exist). At some point of 2.6.24-rc 
series, net-2.6.25 gets opened by DaveM, usually it's not available right 
after closure of 2.6.24 merge window. ...Then again, the trees are 
again rotated when a next official release is made...
