Hi Stephen. Seen M lately?

OpenBSD is maintained in Canada. IIRC the FreeBSD IPSec patches started in

Japan, but I guess they have been merged into the mainstream. I don't know
about NetBSD.

However, the point is well taken. If our *BSD freeware OS' have been
successfully
shipping with IPSec and other advanced crypto, from the U.S. outbound than
it's a
precedent we may be able to follow. Also the Debian project seems to be
moving in
that direction (including crypto in their mainstream distro).

Obviously I opened a can of worms with my question. I just wanted to know
when
the unofficial patches would be sync with 2.4.18 (so I could fetch and
apply them
without having to wrangle addition .rej files; since I a number of local
patches to
apply and wrangle *their* rejects is enough work already).

Clearly there's alot of pent up demand to include more stuff in the
mainstream.
I can understand Marcelo's conservatism (and Linus'). So the various
branch trees
that are popping up. This latest one by Jorg Prante (sorry of the the lack
of
proper diacriticals) is a nice base, with XFS, rmap, Ingo's O(1) scheduler,
KLIPS
and patch-int, and quite a few others. It isn't as outrageous as FOLK and
it uses
the GR (getrewted) patches rather than LIDS. However, as I say, it's a
nice base
for someone who wants to be a few steps off the mainstream.
