Yo,

I took over upstream maintainership of the module-init-tools package 
from Rusty at the end of last year. At this point, there's a public 
wiki, new pre-release, bugzilla and all that jazz up and running:

http://www.kerneltools.org/ has links to the latest release.

There's a mailing list, etc. and most of us involved in m-i-t 
development seem to have already noticed, but just in case, I'm sending 
this reminder out to LKML now. I don't plan on shouting about every 
minor release from this point on - unless it's critically serious.

If you've got any patches (preferably git trees), let me know.

Jon.

Cool.  A patch to the kernel's ./MAINTAINERS would be appreciated.

Sent a patch against the MODULE SUPPORT entry in MAINTAINERS since I
guess that's the existing entry you're refering to.

No, I was thinking of a record which explicitly mentions module-init-tools.
It's not a part of the kernel, but it is closely connected to it, and this is
useful information to have in ./MAINTAINERS.

The patch you sent claims that you maintain kernel/module.c.

Ah, now that makes more sense. I was thinking you were thinking of an 
existing entry. Meh, anyway, way too late in the evening for thought.

Indeed, which I don't want to. Rusty can keep that one for now :-)

Jon.

Thanks 8)

BTW, just chiming in to officially ack Jon's handover of the overgrown
example code known as module-init-tools.

Cheers!
Rusty.
