I've been searching around for the topic these few days. However, I am getting into a problem of information overflow - there are too many different version and custom kernal around. Most of them are still in active development with a chain of discussion on forum that is difficult to check what they actually are.

Do you know are there any feature matrix of these kernel? If it is yet exists, I am going to build one from here. Please share the kernel/rom you found that
