Insomniac's Ginger 0.5
This is my source build of Cyanogenmod 7.2. I pulled it and built it a few days ago. I've been running it and it runs well. It's still got the stock kernel with it. Other kernels were killing the sound.
My plans for this are to turn it into a unique build (I'll do this via cherry-picks, personal taste, and feedback from you folks.) This first release is going to be a little bit rough, but I promise, as I have shown, I don't cut bait and run. I'm with this device for the long haul and I plan on making both the ROM and the Kernel GREAT! I've already forked the kernel. I plan on getting the entire rom on github but that will come later.
I wanted to get this posted before I chickened out. This is something I've wanted to do for a long time. It's pretty far from my comfort zone honestly, but sometimes you just have to jump off a cliff and start flapping. Hope I don't hit those sharp rocks!

The Kernel is provided by stock Cyanogenmod
This Kernel needs work, however as is I've pulled 15 hours moderate use and not had any lag issues or anything, so it's a strong base.

Full Change Log:
This is the first release! I wanted to keep it as stock CM7.2 as possible however I've added some of the gapps including the Market. If any of them are missing, please flash the gapps but that shouldn't be necessary.
