Just wanted to say, latest commit was 3 days ago (https://github.com/copperhead/linux-hardened/commit/54c08027ad4704c97f1c423a1795cc12454df729).

It would be nice, if more security aspects will be merged to the vanilla kernel by default. I can't say anything against even if you do not add that repo or more security, for now you all do a nice job for Solus OS and for the community! , its your opinion and your work, so only you and your team can decide. But this repo is not dead, they continue to apply this patch to the latest kernel. It is just slowed down, because mostly they merged the work of grsecurity. The grsecurity team closed their source in April https://grsecurity.net/passing_the_baton.php and now they try to maintain it unassisted.

@anaknaga How many novice users would install a package like linux-kernel-hardened or something like that in the first place?

It would be a pleasure for me to maintain it myself, but I have no time and I have to study more first. When I installed Antergos with hardened kernel there was no noticeable decreasing of the performance for me. My Intend is not to secure only my pc, I would like to bring the hardened kernel with an easy way to install, to the mass.

I can understand how hard it can be to maintain a new kernel, but this kernel has so many advantages. Debian for example was maintaining the grsec patch but grsec is closed source now and they did not add a new one (I think, last time I used debian was a year ago). But Arch Linux is maintaining this hardened kernel https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&q=hardened&maintainer=&flagged=, yes their os is not really user friendly, for that there is Antergos. I was using Antergos with linux hardened kernel for like a year and there was no decreasing of user friendliness. I just do not like Antergos official desktop environments, I can install Budgie in Antergos but there are annoying bugs sometimes, with Solus (Budgie) I dont have, just working like a charm.

I do not understand why do you closed this task, it is not a duplicate. Grsec can't even added to the repository, because it is closed source now. Linux-hardened patch is open source! So do I understand right? My DIFFERENT package request will be closed, because it is a "duplicate" and will be added to another package request that is closed? Linux-hardened patch is NOT Grsec !
