Thought you may want to know that kongoni GNU/Linux will be shipping
linux-libre 2.6.30 as of our next release (codenamed Nietszche) which
is scheduled for later this month.
Kongoni's aim all along was to be a fully free distribution, and we
would like to thank you for the effort you put into cleaning up the
kernel - we see no point in duplicating that effort, rather our
kernel will be directly based on yours.
The only patches we are adding is LZMA+SquashFS support, AUFS (these
two are required for our live-cd technology, and both are fully free)
and our own bootup logo.
