Portal:Kernel/Releases_kernel.org and Portal:Kernel/in_repostitories ?

See: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/news/tech-news/443566-kernel-linux-2-6-35-released.html I lately 'announced' (on the 2010/08/03) the release of the mainline kernel linux 2.6.35 (on the 2010/08/01). It got much read and there were also questions in the forums where and when the new kernel would be in the openSUSE repositories.

What about news-boxes like:

  1. Portal:Kernel/Releases_kernel.org with the news from the mainline releases?
  2. Portal:Kernel/in_repostitories with the news form openSUSE-kernels in the different repositories?

kernel 2.6.35, kernel 2.6.34, kernel 2.6.31 etc.

What about articles with the highlights of the kernels (and maybe with the date and content of the patched versions of mainline and openSUSE?). Like small 'sisters' of http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Linux-kernel-2-6-35-released-1048504.html http://www.h-online.com/open/features/What-s-new-in-Linux-2-6-35-1047707.html but more form a openSUSE point of view? In Product_highlights#Base_System is the mention of "Linux 2.6.34" but without any link behind it. As I recall Novell/openSUSE/SuSE GmbH and their stuff are *not uninvolved* in making the (mainline) kernels so why not promote this a bit more (and maybe translating a bit for stupid users like me who have their difficulties in interpreting the git threads)? --Pistazienfresser 09:48, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Description of the Repository: Kernel:openSUSE-11.2/openSUSE_11.2

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/openSUSE-11.2/openSUSE_11.2/ "Please do not send submit request against this project, it is autogenerated from the openSUSE-11.2 branch of http://gitorious.org/opensuse/kernel-source. Please clone this repository and send pull requests to opensuse-kernel@opensuse.org, thanks."

Could somewhere (in the wiki?) be explained what that shall mean? Regards --Pistazienfresser 10:30, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
