And it is old.

Well, this is the latest release. However, the README files
haven't exactly been updated lately.

Well, regardless of what is stated in the README files, the
stack should work on 2.4 (we have it running here on 2.4.7).

Nothing of it is included in Linus' official tree (there is
another Bluetooth stack called Bluez in the official tree,
however). To build the OpenBT stack as part of the tree you
need to make a couple of minor modifications to the Makefiles
and Config.in files.

Because this mailing list existed long before the project was
moved to sourceforge.  We have had an internal discussion 
whether we should create a new openbt-devel and abandon this
list or not, but so far we have not decided to do so.
Is this something that people out there want?
