Super long-term kernel support
Andreas Weißel <andreas.weissel@...>
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?
I have a question regarding the super long-term kernel support: canKernel 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
Check with your lawyers.
(Plus, CIP project is trying to be friendly member of community....)

Hi CIP kernel team,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.
