Kernel.org is a registered US non-profit organization, managed by a non-profit industry consortium (The Linux Foundation). The entire stack behind kernel.org is free software, excepting any firmware blobs on the physical hardware. I'm not trying to influence anyone's opinion of where the links should be pointing at, but it's important to point out that kernel.org and GitHub serve different purposes: - kernel.org provides free-as-in-liberty archive hosting on a platform that is not locked into any vendor. - github.com provides an integrated development infrastructure that is fully closed-source, excepting the protocols.
