I remember Greg announced 3.4 to be long term in addition to 3.0
recently.  3.2 only is the Debian release kernel, for which the
maintainers offered to maintain it as a formal stable release
on kernel.org

And yes, it's getting not only confusing but also way to much work
for subsystem maintainers.

I'm still happy to backport fixes to 3.0, but for more invasive work
it's getting a bit too old now.
