Hi CIP kernel team,
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?
As Pavel already pointed out: The CIP kernel naturally remains a GPL project, usage is free under the terms of this license.

The benefits of being a CIP member - besides ensuring the funding of this work - is the chance to influence which configurations and, thus, subsystems the CIP kernel will support, and on which hardware.

Best regards,
Jan
