I have started this new tree at 

It currently only contains 2.4.28-rsbac-v1.2.3 with bugfixes 1-11 
(where appropiate) and the uselib bugfix I posted to this list. More 
will certainly come. Automatic packaging into a pre-patched source 
archive will be added soon.

Each source tree contains a file BUGFIXES with a list of all bugfixes 
applied and a subdir BUGFIXES-third-party, which contains all outside

We need contributors and testers. Jörg Weber, the Adamantix kernel 
maintainer, has already signalled that he would like to help.

So, folks, please tell what bugfixed source trees you need:
- 2.4.28-rsbac-pax?
- 2.6.10-rsbac?
- 2.6.10-rsbac-pax?

Specially continously bugfixing 2.6.x will be more work than I can 
handle without help - so I need volunteers for this. Please post 
security bugs that you desire to be fixed to this list, so none of 
them gets dropped.

There is a discussion about a central Linux kernel authority for 
security bug reports and fixes going on at the Linux kernel mailing 
list. I expect a central repository with broken out patches soon, 
which will make our life much easier.

BTW, 2.4.29 will be out soon. Known bugs should be fixed there. This 
does not remove the need to fix existing 2.4.28 installations,
