With the end of public grsecurity patches (https://grsecurity.net/passing_the_baton_faq.php) what is the future looking like for grsec/pax in Alpine? I had a search but couldn't find anything definite - some mention of a fork maybe? Is Alpine's grsec implementation already a fork?

I'd love to know more about this, any helpful link or info greatly appreciated.

An unofficial grsecurity fork is being used, and the kernel has a label called 'hardened' instead of 'grsecurity'.

See the 'Secure' paragraph in Alpine's about page or this video passage.
