TOMOYO Linux was merged into the mainline in 2.6.29-git1.
We thank Satoru Ueda for giving us opportunities to have presentations at CE Linux Forum's Japan Technical Jamboree. This was the first event that we were taught what the mainline is.
We thank Hirotaka Yoshioka for giving us opportunities to have presentations at YLUG kernel code reading party. This was the very event that we were foreordained to challenge the mainline. Without this event, we would not have started the challenge for the mainline.
We thank James Morris for coming to Linux Foundation Japan Symposium #8 and Linux Conf Au 2009 and understanding why name based security is needed.
We thank Casey Schaufler for proving that new security modules can merge into the mainline.
We thank Stephen Smalley for coming to Ottawa Linux Symposium 2007/2008 and giving us a critical comment that extricated ourselves from our stagnation.
We thank Andrew Morton for listening to our problem when we were blocked by the lack of new LSM hooks.
We thank Al Viro for accepting new LSM hooks which made TOMOYO possible to merge into the mainline.
We thank Crispin Cowan for proposing AppArmor. We were able to have a chance to understand why name based security is regarded as an inferior solution. We continued the name based security, with our belief that inode based security and name based security are complementary and both should be used together. The gate for name based security opened. Go for it!
