<h3>Hall of Shame!!!</h3>

The following products and/or projects appear to use BusyBox, but do not appear
to release source code as required by the BusyBox license.  This is a violation
of the law!  The distributors of these products are invited to contact <a href=
"mailto:andersen at codepoet.org">Erik Andersen</a> if they have any confusion as
to what is needed to bring their products into compliance, or if they have
already brought their product into compliance and wish to be removed from the
Hall of Shame.


Complying with the Busybox license is easy and completely free, so the
companies listed below should be ashamed of themselves.  Furthermore, each
product listed here is subject to being legally ordered to cease and desist
distribution for violation of copyright law, and the distributor of each
product is subject to being sued for statutory copyright infringement damages
plus legal fees.  Nobody wants to be sued, and <a
href="mailto:andersen at codepoet.org">Erik</a> certainly has better things to do
than sue people.  But he will sue if forced to do so to maintain compliance.
Do everyone a favor and don't break the law -- if you use busybox, comply with
the busybox license by releasing the source code with your product.

<h3>Mailing List Information</h3>
BusyBox has a <a href="/lists/busybox/">mailing list</a> for discussion and
development.  You can subscribe by visiting 
<a href="http://busybox.net/mailman/listinfo/busybox">this page</a>. 

There is also a mailing list for <a href="/lists/busybox-cvs/">active developers</a>
wishing to read the complete diff of each and every change to busybox -- not for the
faint of heart.  Active developers can subscribe by visiting 
<a href="http://busybox.net/mailman/listinfo/busybox-cvs">this page</a>. 


<h3>Search the List Archives</h3>
Please search the mailing list archives before asking questions on the mailing
list, since there is a good chance someone else has asked the same question
before.  Checking the archives is a great way to avoid annoying everyone on the
list with frequently asked questions...

  <li><b>12 Sept 2003 -- BusyBox 1.0.0-pre3 released</b><p> 

    Here goes the third pre-release for the new BusyBox stable
    series.  The last prerelease has held up quite well under
    testing, but a number of problems have turned up as the number
    of people using it has increased.  Thanks everyone for all
    the testing, bug reports, and patches!

    If you have submitted a patch or a bug report to the busybox
    mailing list and no one has emailed you explaining why your
    patch was rejected, it is safe to say that your patch has
    somehow gotten lost or forgotten.  That happens sometimes.
    Please re-submit your patch or bug report to the BusyBox
    mailing list!


    The point of the "-preX" versions is to get a larger group of
    people and vendors testing, so any problems that turn up can be
    fixed prior to the final 1.0.0 release.  The main feature
    (besides additional testing) that is still still on the TODO
    list before the final BusyBox 1.0.0 release is sorting out the
    modutils issues.  For the new 2.6.x kernels, we already have
    patches adding insmod and rmmod support and those need to be
    integrated.  For 2.4.x kernels, for which busybox only supports
    a limited number of architectures, we may want to invest a bit
    more work before we cut 1.0.0.  Or we may just leave 2.4.x
    module loading alone.


    I had hoped this release would be out a month ago.  And of
    course, it wasn't since Erik became busy getting a release of 
    <a href="http://www.uclibc.org/">uClibc</a> 
    out the door.  Many thanks to Glenn McGrath (bug1) for
    stepping in and helping get a bunch of patches merged!  I am
    not even going to state a date for releasing BusyBox 1.0.0
    -pre4 (or the final 1.0.0).  We're aiming for late September...
    But if this release proves as to be exceptionally stable (or
    exceptionally unstable!), the next release may be very soon


    The <a href="downloads/Changelog">changelog</a> has all 
    the details.  And as usual you can 
    <a href="downloads">download busybox here</a>.

    <p>Have Fun!


    <li><b>30 July 2003 -- BusyBox 1.0.0-pre2 released</b><p> 

    Here goes another pre release for the new BusyBox stable
    series.  The last prerelease (pre1) was given quite a lot of
    testing (thanks everyone!) which has helped turn up a number of
    bugs, and these problems have now been fixed.


    Highlights of -pre2 include updating the 'ash' shell to sync up
    with the Debian 'dash' shell, a new 'hdparm' applet was added,
    init again supports pivot_root,  The 'reboot' 'halt' and
    'poweroff' applets can now be used without using busybox init.
    an ifconfig buffer overflow was fixed, losetup now allows
    read-write loop devices, uClinux daemon support was added, the
    'watchdog', 'fdisk', and 'kill' applets were rewritten, there were
    tons of doc updates, and there were many other bugs fixed.

    If you have submitted a patch and it is not included in this
    release and Erik has not emailed you explaining why your patch
    was rejected, it is safe to say that he has lost your patch.
    That happens sometimes.   Please re-submit your patch to the
    BusyBox mailing list.

    The point of the "-preX" versions is to get a larger group of
    people and vendors testing, so any problems that turn up can be
    fixed prior to the final 1.0.0 release.  The main feature that
    is still still on the TODO list before the final BusyBox 1.0.0
    release is adding module support for the new 2.6.x kernels.  If
    necessary, a -pre3 BusyBox release will happen on August 6th.
    Hopefully (i.e.  unless some horrible catastrophic problem
	    turns up) the final BusyBox 1.0.0 release will be ready by

<h3>How to use CVS</h3>

If you want to know all the gory details, you will want to visit
<a href="http://www.cvshome.org/">the CVS main web page</a>.<p>
For the impatient, the following is probably about all you need to know:

    <dt><pre>cvs checkout -c</pre>
    <dd>Will list the modules available for checkout
    <dt><pre>cvs checkout &lt module name &gt</pre> 
    <dd>Will checkout the named module
    <dt><pre>cvs co &lt module name &gt</pre> 
    <dd>Same thing
    <dt><pre>cvs update</pre>

    <dd>Updates your local archive so it is in sync with the repository 
    -- your local updates are left intact.  Tries to merge upstream updates 
    into your local updates.  You will see the following tags when it is
    updating your local repository: C means conflict, U means update, 
    P means patched, and M means modified.
    <dt><pre>cvs up</pre>
    <dd>Same thing
    <dt><pre>cvs update &lt file name &gt</pre>
    <dd>Same thing but for just the named file(s)/directory(s).
    <dt><pre>cvs commit</pre>
    <dd>Will check in all your work.
    <dt><pre>cvs add &lt file name &gt</pre>

    <dd>Adds the named file/directory into CVS
    <dt><pre>cvs remove &lt file name &gt</pre>
    <dd>Removes the named file/directory from the upstream repository.
    <dt><pre>cvs rm &lt file name &gt</pre>
    <dd>Same thing
    <dt><pre>cvs log &lt file name &gt</pre>
