Thanks, I'd like to see an LKML version, too :) First, I want
to ensure public-inbox can handle large repos better, first.
public-inbox.org/git has been doing well so far, even on a
low-end VM with 2 cores and 2GB RAM.
I don't have anything close to full history of LKML, and
download.gmane.org is down, right now :< I'd use NNTP, but
news.gmane.org gets overloaded from slrnpull and I even got
temporarily banned there before discovering download.gmane
Maybe I'll do what was done with linux.git in 2005 and just
ignore old mail for a while...
