Until 2 weeks ago there were almost daily updates to the kernel - the
last one was on 19 September, kernel 3.16.3-1. But that was the last one
- 17 days ago.

All the updates I have have come from the repo
..../Kernel:/standard/stable/ .

I see many posts about patches to the kernel but see no sign of any
updated kernels.

Is there a problem with building the updated kernel for 13.1 (for
example) or has development of the kernel stopped?

Funny :D.

No it has not. It is still rolling.

No, not 'funny' at all - it was a genuine question as my post indicated
for the reason given there.

Strange too, that while there were no responses to my post (yours is the
only one, and days later) 2 days after my post a new kernel was
available. But then coincidences do happen...... :-) .

I am most gratified to hear that this is so :-) .

Yes, I committed something. It was only that there were no stable
updates in that time frame, nor fixes pushed to the stable branch...

No worries, it's there and is not going to die.

Yep, and, in fact, there was an upgrade to 3.17.0 yesterday :-) .

Thanks for the explanation.
