Custom kernels, yadda yadda
Well, nobody seems to care enough to be bothered by writing for this blog as of yet. Presumably they all prefer to read endless irc logs. In any case, here's the current status:
The old custom kernels from a couple years back are incompatible with the packet inspection that's now taking place in hardware before it reaches the web application servers. So the web app has to be patched to not rely on the custom environment anymore.
That's straight from Carl's mouth, or at least from someone in the chat who uses Carl's nick. Is it true? What does it mean? When will Plastic be back? Nobody knows.
