Status of PPSkit

The following table summarizes the current status of PPSkit. For each architecture the questions Compiles?/Works OK? are answered. Possible choices are Y for Yes (non-SMP), S for Yes (even SMP), and N for No (M means Missing (not done yet)).

For Maintenance Status the possible choices are Y for Yes (current branch), C for Conditionally (if you can convince me), and N for No (sources probably unavailable).

Unlisted architectures are not done.

Last releases of PPSkit on each branch, the corresponding Linux kernel release, maintenance status, and the compilation/execution status. Usually only the top branch is actively maintained.

As I am unable to test architectures other than i386 I appreciate any updates to the above table very much.

Please keep in mind that the version of the NTP software has to be compatible with the kernel implementation.
