+title: 'Hardened Linux kernel sources removal'
+As you may know the core of
+has been the grsecurity patches. Recently the grsecurity developers have
+[decided to limit access to these patches](https://grsecurity.net/passing_the_baton.php).
+As a result, the Gentoo Hardened team is unable to ensure a regular
+patching schedule and therefore the security of the users of these
+kernel sources. Thus, we will be masking hardened-sources on the 27th of
+August and will proceed to remove them from the package repository by the end of
+September. We recommend to use
+instead. Userspace hardening and support for SELinux will of course
+remain in the Gentoo package tree. Please see
+[the full news item](https://www.gentoo.org/support/news-items/2017-08-19-hardened-sources-removal.html)
+for additional information and links.
