Re: Super long-term kernel support

Hi!

I have a question regarding the super long-term kernel support: can
other commercial or non-commercial projects make use of such kernel
versions like "linux-4.19.y-cip", i.e., use the CIP git repositories
to address security issues (CVEs) in the Linux kernel even after the
upstream long-term versions are no longer supported, or is this
considered a service for members only?
Kernel is GPLed. If you get any version of kernel from anywhere, you
are basically welcome to use it any way you want. That's what GPL
says.

Check with your lawyers.

(Plus, CIP project is trying to be friendly member of community....)

Best regards,
Pavel
