Yes. Indeed. I just compared the two trees and got

/opt/linuxppc > dircmp -s devel_2_4_18 linux
2002-04-12 10:18       Comparison of devel_2_4_18 linux        Seite

different       ./fs/binfmt_elf.c
different       ./net/ipv4/udp.c

But I am still not sure if I understand what that means. Is there a
FAQ/README/HowTo about the LinuxPPC/Bitkeeper/Versionnumbering

Which ChangeSet or Tag stands for a stable PPC kernel?

Which ChangeSet equals (with regard to functionality) the official
linux-2.4.18 from kernel.org?

Does the ChangesSet 1.900 (which is shortly after Tag 2.4.18) contain
all the stuff that's in the offical kernel?
