KernelTrap has been updated to Drupal 6. We're running a fair bit of custom code, so please let me know if you find anything broken or if any of your favorite features are missing. And yes, this upgrade is the first step toward getting regular posts on the website again.
The biggest behind the scenes change was updating Drupal from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6. I've also added a small collection of social networking modules you can find by clicking 'My account' when you're logged in. Other similar features will be added as time permits.
Going forward, the biggest remaining task left for me to do is to improve the mailarchive module to be able to handle the number of emails reaching the lkml and other kernel mailing lists. I'll be sharding the data to solve the immediate performance issues, and then will look to better integrate it with Sphinx offloading expensive SQL queries. Once that is done, I finally intend to return to reading the mailing lists and posting summaries on these pages.
