Comment 4 solar (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-08 16:59:02 UTC
grsec-sources 2.4.17 is in the tree. 
I'd like to pull 2.4.26 before having to add yet another patch for it.
Comment 5 Konstantin Arkhipov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-09 06:17:33 UTC
done openmosix-sources
Comment 6 Guy Martin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-09 15:59:07 UTC
Done on hppa.

all done for rsbac-sources
Comment 8 Joshua Kinard gentoo-dev 2004-08-11 02:49:28 UTC
mips-sources all patched up.
Comment 9 Gustavo Zacarias (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-12 05:47:46 UTC
sparc-sources-2.4.27 is out and stable courtesy of Joker, fixed.
Comment 10 David Holm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-12 06:29:01 UTC
We are going to deprecate {ppc,pegasos}-sources as the 2.4 tree for ppc is no longer actively developed. I hope to be able to get this done later today.
