It very much is for new product development. It's a long time that I've
seen any 2.4-based development being started for new MIPS platforms. I
basically get zero feedback for 2.4.
The last patch submitted for 2.4 was on 2006-06-15 by Chris Dearman btw.
Everything else since was just backported fixes from newer kernels and I've
given up on that give the overwhelming feedback I keep receiving for 2.4.

Actually 220.127.116.11 / 2.4.36-pre1 are the latest.

I do take Linux 2.4 patches provided they don't destabilize the 2.4 branch.
The few remaining user expect stability, not a Penguin action movie ;-)
But aside of that, same submission guidelines as for 2.6.
