Author: JT Smith

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/alan/linux-2.4/. Intermediate diffs are available from http://www.bzimage.org. Cox writes, "Small fixes to various long standing bugs, various architecture and driver cleanups. The 2.4.10-ac tree now seems pretty solid. Email warning: It's possible my static ip range will evaporate about monday. If so that may cause some disruption to the ukuu.org.uk, bc.nu, cabal.tm domains and to my email while I shuffle stuff around."
