Check out It's a recently released website created by CS majors at Clarkson University for sharing and downloading Linux kernal patches. They are just getting up and running, so they have a few bugs and are probably looking for submissions as well. The site looks like it has the potential to be very useful for those of us who compile our own kernels..."

    Also, there's major link overload on that site... in the submissions, every word is the link. I think a better balance can be reached.

    Here are some other important domains, these ones as of yet unclaimed. or -- you too can compete with []. -- water cooling for OCers -- Slashdot too Linux-centric for you? Build a Windows site! -- for people who like building systems from parts other people are throwing out -- Slashdot's potential future sister S&M site -- for Morse code/ham radio fans? -- jobs for nerds, stuff that matters?
  • this is easy... how the hell you want us to believe this... linux doesn't have any bugs... bah

    I'm the head of the Patchdot project here @ Clarkson University... I just wanted to give you guys an update on how things are running and ask for a few favors of the /. community.

    Yes, we did borrow the name a bit. :) It's just a tribute to the site we visit daily. And it rhymes, and what-have-you too. There's some kind of phonical connection there.

    As far as the page goes -- it's VERY un-polished. Someone posted earlier about the "everything is a link" bug, which we're working on fixing. There will be/are plenty of those at this point -- we just got a beta (more like alpha) of the site up last week. It's been a project we've been working on for awhile, but we haven't had much in the way of results until recently.

    The one thing I'd really appreciate from you guys is some feedback. We're trying to give this project back to the kernel community, so anything that you see on the page that isn't there that you want, let us know. If you see anything there that you hate, let us know. It's all about you guys, so please please please please please check it out and let us know what you would like to see.

    Now that we're public (we weren't really expecting a /. post till we announced our existence), tomorrow will be a big coding day. :)

    I'm one of the developers on patchdot. This is still a very early stage and the source is pretty gross. Like the teamlead posted earlier please give us feedback, this could become a very usefull tool for following the linux kernel. Also we will be providing the code back to PHPNuke so others can use our modules. One last thing the post didn't mention, patchdot is one of the projects sposored by the Clarkson Open Source Institute [].
