Puffinfest Fort Collins
From Saturday 24th of March to Wednesday 29th March, a flock of Linux/PARISC developers gathered at the Hewlett-Packard Fort Collins site to discuss various issues related to the port. We have pictures.
Linus 2.3.99pre1 merge
While at the fest, we merged Linus' 2.3.99pre1 tree into our tree. Thanks to everyone who participated in the merge. This gets us through the softnet merge, which meant we couldn't pull later drivers into our tree. Hopefully there won't be any further drastic modifications of the internal APIs before 2.4 is released. pre2 has been unstable for some people and pre3 has broken root NFS, so pre1 was as far as we wanted to go for the moment.

The bulk of checkins came from the 2.3.99pre1 merge
