Not that I'm the right person to ask, but I've heard Ben Collins from Canonical echo that it doesn't make sense (from a maintainability standpoint) for them to keep adding more kernels. A grsecurity kernel should go into Universe but probably won't.
Did you know that the Security team takes proactive security features from other distros and upstream to put into Ubuntu?  Also, instead of a seperate kernel, they are splitting grsecurity into individual patches and slowly integrating those . You are more than welcome to create a PPA of your own and upload grsecurity kernels.  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuHardenedKernel  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyServerSecurity  https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas -- Jeff Schroeder Don't drink and derive, alcohol and analysis don't mix. http://www.digitalprognosis.com -- ubuntu-hardened mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-hardened
