"Never", then :-)

There's only one "source repo" for kernel, git.  It only makes sense to
have stable branch I guess, since that is what most people will have on
their device.

Just do it once a day should be fine.  My google method often gets me
2.6.17 and even that is OK for many things, like which include file is
such and such struct defined in... grep is very noisy for popular struct
names but lxr understands the definition action and lists it separately.

| besides that it seems atleast 'do-able' (even if i really do not like
| perl code anymore ;))

I read it was ugly to set up, but CPAN is the man for the perl stuff.
