1This is a snapshot of linux 2.6.12 kconfig as washed through busybox and
   2further modified by Rob Landley.
   4Note: The build infrastructure in this directory is still GPLv2. Cleaning
   5that out is a TODO item, but it doesn't affect the resulting binary.
   7Way back when I tried to push my local changes to kconfig upstream
   8in 2005
   9and 2006
  10and 2007
  11each of which spawned long "I think you should go do this and this and this
  12but I'm not going to lift a finger personally" threads from the kernel
  13developers. Twice I came back a year later to see if there was any interest
  14in what I _had_ done, and the third thread was the longest of the lot but
  15no code was merged as a result.
  17*shrug* That's the linux-kernel community for you. I had an easier time
  18than the author of squashfs, who spent 5 years actively trying to get his code
  19merged, finally quitting his job to spend an unpaid year working on upstreaming
  20squashfs _after_ after every major Linux distro had been locally carrying it
  21for years. No really, here's where he wrote about it himself:
  25This code is _going_away_. Rewriting it is low priority, but removing it is a
  26checklist item for the 1.0 toybox release. This directory contains the only
  27GPL code left in the tree, and none of its code winds up in the resulting
  28binary. It's just an editor that reads our files to update the top
  29level .config file; you can edit they by hand if you really want to.
