This is the home page of the Linux kernel backporting project.

We provide drivers released on newer kernels backported for usage on older kernels.

Both daily snapshots based on linux-next, and stable releases based Linux's stable releases are provided.

The project aims to optimize the backporting process by not only providing backported drivers but by also aiming to automatically backport the Linux kernel by optimizing backporting collateral evolutions.
