5/31/04 Important Announcement Regarding the grsecurity
Project Beginning today, May 31, 2004, development of grsecurity will cease. On June 7, the website, forums, mailing list, and CVS will be shut down. Due to a sponsor unexpectedly dropping sponsorship of grsecurity while continually promising payment, I began the summer in debt and had to borrow money from family to pay for food. If none of the companies that depend on grsecurity, some of them being very large, are able to sponsor the project, grsecurity will cease to exist. Though grsecurity is licensed under the GPL, I am the sole developer and originator of ideas for the project. Though it would be possible for others to handle maintenance of the project, the quality won't be held to the same standards and will not progress with the same goals I have set for the project. I am not looking for help with hosting, as the hosting for grsecurity has been provided for free for over a year and a half and will continue to be provided unless the project has to end. I am also not looking for paypal donations at this point, unless those that donate do so with the recognition that despite their donation, grsecurity may still never be returning. If your company wishes to sponsor grsecurity, please contact me at [email protected] To continue to the website (until June 7th)...
mislim da ovo nije prvi slučaj i da je ovo pattern koji se često ponavlja, mislite o tome. što je najgore, dosta servera se oslanja na grsec patch-eve, koji su *beep*, ali ipak najčešće rade posao.
