Why all the tags where removed from altera-opensource/linux-socfpga?



I’m working on a project that used the tag ACDS15.0.1_REL_GSRD_PR but It was remove recently from https://github.com/altera-opensource/linux-socfpga.

Why all the tags where removed from the repo ?
What would be the closest hash to that tags ?

Thank you


Intel is not allowing any product groups to publish any software that contains known CVE’s, so they removed all the software branches in the linux and u-boot repositories that predate the Spectre/Meltdown patched releases.


No way!?

Yeah…all the ACDS* tags related to the ACDS releases are gone…
Does spectre/meltdown predate the 17.1 ACDS release?

Would also like to know the closest hashes to the latest ACDS releases.
