        I think that EXTRAVERSION must be a number, isn't it ? For me, we need to
replace all version number in the current Linux kernel by a new version
number, and remove all old code never used from this kernel. A lot of
code stays in serial.c and some other sources and is never compiled.

        I have released a real kernel to find new contributers.

        Only the modification of some configuration scripts. I have tried to
remove some old code, but it's a big work, and I think that we shall
need a CVS tree with place enough to put the entire kernel.

        I'm working on the beginning of the bootloader which can emulate a SRM
console...
