This week, a number of states in the United States suffered a winter cold wave, and some regions ushered in rare low temperatures and snowstorms. Infrastructure construction and regulatory loopholes across the country led to serious problems in energy supply. For example, large-scale blackouts and heating stoppages occurred in Texas.As the core of the open source world, the development of Linux kernel is also affected.

After the official release of Linux 5.11 last week, the work of the kernel team has entered the merging stage of 5.12, which was originally a very important version, but the disastrous weather conditions in many places must slow them down or even stop them.

At present, there is no specific time node for the kernel merge window to restart.

The official announcement is as follows:

Those of us who are paying attention to the mainline kernel repository may have been wondering why the pull request of the 5.12 merge window seems not to have been executed. The problem is a blackout caused by severe winter weather in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The 5.12 merge window is likely to be shelved until this issue is resolved, which may take a few days.
