But you are obviously able to send email to it :/

Yes, I know, but local political problems are not something we can
fix here.

As it is, I'm not sure we're going to put those trees back on
kernel.org - there's been no discussion I've seen about doing this,
and the absence of the trees hasn't hurt us at all thanks to Alex
pushing stuff into the oss.sgi.com trees quickly.

And FWIW, I'm not planning on putting my dev trees back on
kernel.org any time soon - too many hoops to jump through now. I'll
probably use github or some other site for doing that when the need
