Kevin has resumed work on a lighter-weight version of Plex86.  I'm still not sure if I plan to keep working with this fork or not.

Patch Criteria......

If you want a good idea as to how I think about patches (and why they aren't being added to the old plex86 tree for the time being...) then you should have a look at what Linus said about how he accepts patches for his project.  I think very similarly to him--except that since I am an engineer and he isn't I'm a little more worried about the bottom line: "DOES IT STILL WORK RIGHT?"

Old site is down....

The old plex86 web site is no more.  I was wondering how long it would take for them to take it down, but it is now--the wondering is over.  In any case, this is where the work happens--so be it.  I have the old cvs still, in case anybody wants to play with it.  I may get it posted here, and then branched/modularized, etc.--but the development is going to focus more on the plex86-release stuff for now.
