    Subject[Announce] Linux-tiny project revival
    Recently, the CE Linux forum has been working to revive the
    Linux-tiny project. At OLS, I asked for interested parties
    to volunteer to become the new maintainer for the Linux-tiny patchset.

    A few candidates came forward, but eventually Michael Opdenacker
    was selected as the new primary maintainer. A few other
    people, including John Cooper of Wind River and myself
    are working to support this effort.

    Recently, many of the Linux-tiny patches have been brought up-to-date
    and are now available for use with a 2.6.22 kernel. The intent
    is to test these, and begin mainlining the most effective sub-patches,
    in the next few months.

    Some automated testing has already been set up, with some
    preliminary results published at a CELF conference in Japan.
    (See the linux-tiny page below for a link to the presentation.)
    Hopefully, results publishing will also be automated soon.

    We encourage anyone with interest in this project to get involved.
    If you have ideas how to reduce the static or dynamic memory footprint
    of Linux, or, even better, patches for this, please let us know about
