Getting the kernel



2009-10-29 The linux-mips.org machine will be shutdown around 1730Z for a memory upgrade.
2009-06-11 Recently MIPS Technologies, Inc. sold its Analog Business Group, the former Chipidea Lda to Synopsys. The linux-mips.org server machine was being hosted by MTI at the Chipidea site in Lisbon, Portugal, so linux-mips.org had to move to a new site. It is now generously being hosted by Imre Kaloz in Budapest, Hungary. Köszönöm szépen Imre!
2009-06-03 The reverse DNS problem has been resolved.
2009-06-01 The reverse DNS entries for linux-mips.org have been deleted. Since most mailserver are checking for existence of these, many users will no longer be able to receive email from linux-mips.org until this has been fixed.
2009-05-13 Due to the sale of the Analog Business Group by MIPS Technologies linux-mips.org will have to move to a new server machine which will result in some downtime. Details are still being worked out.
2009-01-19 Announced maintenance downtime canceled. Turned out it was actually possible to swap the drive without shutting down the system even though it supposedly wasn't hotswapable.
2009-01-16 A drive of linux-mips.org's server machine is failing and will have to be replaced soon. This will result in some downtime with no further announcement.
2008-12-30 On 2008-12-26 Thiemo Seufer "ths" lost his life in a traffic accident through no fault of his own. The funeral service for Thiemo will take place on Monday January 5th 2009 13:30 at Dominikanerkirche, Bad Wimpfen, Germany. If you want to express your condolences please send mail to ths-condolence@linutronix.de. It will be passed on to Thiemo's family. For further info contact Ralf Baechle <ralf@linux-mips.org>.
2008-06-03 Starting tomorrow the linux-next tree will carry MIPS patches intended to be merged into the next kernel release which at this time would be 2.6.27.
2008-04-18 Due to DNS breakage at the ISP a significant number of users have been dropped from the mailing list. The issue has been reported to the ISP and is expected to be resolved quickly.
2008-03-04 By the end of March the linux-mips.org server will move to a new site resulting in several days of downtime. User of the git trees are reminded of the mirror of kernel.org. Email to linux-mips.org will be delayed until the machine is running again but should not be lost.
2007-03-02 Linux Weekly News article shows MIPS is one of the most active Linux architectures
