I'm not really in action, but I'll try to setup a basic tree for 2.6,
as well as trim down the 2.4 tree to just the files we modified.

Thanks. If my suggestions died with your PC, they are on the archive,
or I can resend them.

Maybe project administrators can somehow chown files, maybe there is an easier
way that I haven't thought of, but when I try to remove or overwrite the files
you wrote, I get "permission denied" from the kernel due to lacking
access rights.

I'm not always as bright as Oleg -- that's a proposed change.

Well, as I said in a previous message, the latest CVS changes from Oleg
make my kluge obsolete as far as my configuration is concerned.
I still have to remove and reinsert my eth0 before cardmgr -o
will see it properly, and cardmgr will still Oops the kernel in a bad way
(locking away any further cardmgr attempt) once the rootfs is mounted on hda,
but otherwise, it works as well as it ever has.

I don't think anyone is working on that.
Maybe waiting for kernel 2.6...
