Sounds great, I'll take care of getting the blog info to Amanda and Jennifer.

Yep, when I did a checkout yesterday I noticed that it's now compat-drivers.  Builds fine on my SLE 11 SP2 box (3.0.26 kernel).  :)  On this topic, I've thought some more about what would be the best way to make sure the project continually builds for our openSUSE and SLE kernels.  My latest idea is to pull the code into a compat-drivers project on our Open Build Service (OBS: http://build.opensuse.org ) .  Have you heard of OBS?  If I put the code in there then I could do continual git pulls and builds for all our openSUSE and SLE versions.  (It can also build for other distros like RHEL, Ubuntu, etc. but my focus would be on our distros).  Thoughts?  I guess the basic question is whether it makes more sense to add lots of distro kernels into your builds or whether your builds should focus on kernel.org kernels and then different distro vendors take care of ensuring that the project builds for their own kernels.  Maybe this discussion belongs on the list but I'm trying to get an initial feel for the overall design...

On another note, have you heard anything more from Konstantin re. whether kernel.org would accept hardware w/o a support contract?  My HP contact here asked about the status.

Thanks much,

Ann
