I took all patches I could find (with their signatures and changelogs!), starting from the beginning of the Linux Git history (2005: v2.6.14.2), and applying them following branches and merges. The result is quite interesting and help to dive into the Linux/grsecurity internals (with log, blame and bisect). Moreover, it show the work of Brad Spengler backporting fixes.

Thanks for the pointer! This could be a nice resource for people who

Related to resources, I also think it'd be great to start a collection
