60Linux 2.4 is maintained by Marcelo Tosatti. Linus Torvalds, the original
61creator of Linux, handed maintainership of the Linux 2.4 branch over to
62Marcelo when Linus went off to start developing the newer 2.6 kernel tree.
63Marcelo has done a fine job of keeping 2.4 stable and secure, and is now
64only accepting security and bug fixes into the 2.4 kernel tree. Actual
65development happens in the Linux 2.6 kernel tree.

71Development is happening at incredible pace and this kernel tree is now very
