The project has been sleeping due to school and work. The minidist has also worked well for me so I haven't been forced to update anything. The kernel is far from current though, I expect to put some work in it quite soon.
Got approoved! Really excited about this project. I have disk images already but will take a closer look at the Artistic License version 2 (not available yet), and I will finish my workstation install to be able to continue developement at a better pace.
