The FOLK project aims to provide a single patch which incorporates as many Linux kernel projects as can be crammed in. Its goal is to allow people who are interested in experimenting with the different projects to get on with the experimenting, rather than spend time fixing clashing diffs. It also has the goal of giving some of the more obscure projects a better chance of being seen and used. It is not intended for "general use". If a given release is stable, that will be by sheer luck. These are experimental projects, of unknown quality and completeness, being thrown together in ways that the developers are unlikely to have even remotely considered.

Release Notes: The biggest change is the replacement of the low-latency stuff with the lock-breaking extension for the preempt patch. The next biggest change is the addition of the LSM security code, and SE-Linux. A poster of the kernel has been generated (either as an image you can posterize to suit, or as a 6x6 set of A4 postscript files).
Release Notes: This is a rebuild of the FOLK patch; most kernel options compile correctly. Not everything from FOLK 2.2.x has been migrated yet.
Release Notes: Two new VME drivers, merging of KGI, korbot, and ppscsi, merging up to Alan Cox's 2.4.9-ac12, and updates to VAX architecture, JFS, XFS, i2c/lm_sensors, and badmem.
Release Notes: Many new patches, including (but not limited to) SELinux, the GetRewted patch, PPS, the Transputer Link driver and the Tekram DC395/DC315 driver. Upgrades include 2.4.9-ac3 and the latest XFS c
