The Linux Kernel Organization, more commonly known as, is the primary site for the Linux kernel source, but it has much more than just Linux kernels. We provide a multitude of services from the our mirrors of Linux distributions, wikis at to help with documentation, to help track kernel bugs, providing universal network booting to providing kernel related git hosting and providing the source code for the Android Linux distribution.


  • Automatic installation customization Extend the capabilities of (BKO) by providing a web application that allows for customization of Linux installations performed through BKO.
  • Centralized Statistics Gathering The open source community relies on a vast array of mirrors to host downloads. While this works well, the current state makes it very difficult to gain information about downloads. The goal of this project is to design and implement a client/server system that records and reports download information to a central server. The server is then responsible for processing the information and generating statistics about project downloads for use by project administrators.
