Working Overloaded Linux Kernel

The Working Overloaded Linux Kernel (WOLK) project provides stable and development kernels for either server or testing purposes. These kernels provide a server kernel and also a service for developers and end users who can't be up-to-date with the latest kernels/patches but want to test new kernel features. Patches may be added upon request.
