Minor changes to kernel tarball releases
We'd like to announce several small changes to the way Linux tarballs are produced.

RC tarballs and patches starting with 4.12-rc1

These changes would have resulted in GPG returning "Bad Signature ...read more
Fast new frontends with Packet
We are extremely happy to announce that Packet has graciously donated the new hardware systems providing read-only public access to the kernel.org git repositories and the public website (git.kernel.org and www.kernel.org, respectively).
