Thanks for the response. Though, I will take exception to:
You're right that I didn't spend a huge amount of time on it, but neither should I have to.
At the moment, none of the use cases for the existing maemo.org - or the version to replace it - have "kernel developer who wants to do some investigation work on how close to upstream the Maemo kernel is". Personally (and no offence to you, or the very interesting article that this is), I don't think that's a use case we would want to support particularly.
The important thing (IMHO) is that someone wanting to do kernel hacking for their Maemo device can get, patch and rebuild the kernel. This is doable (evident from the number of community members who have done exactly that), although the procedure may be inadequate (anything involving Scratchbox is, unless you've already got it setup).
