Status of the Nova project

Have just started to work on it. Right now it can load /sbin/init from a ext2 file system and run it.

Obtaining Nova

If you plan to do active work on the nova, you can access the development source tree by anonymous CVS:
  cvs login 
  {just hit enter when prompted for password}
  cvs -z3 co nova
Alternatively, you can use the viewcvs interface.


There are some public mailing lists related to rtmk.
