Thanks Stevo, I thought it was something complex like that.

I am often wondering how to see which actual kernel.org version these derivatives are based on. So for Liquorix, the source link will have the actual kernel version.
MX and antix, I am still not clear where I can find the actual kernel.org version. I think the latest MX kernel is the 4.15.3 or .4.

antiX is easy - it is the same as the version from kernel.org e.g. the one you are currently using, 4.15.5-antix.1, is compiled from kernel.org's 4.15.5
Soon to hit the repos will be antiX kernel 4.15.9-antix.1, built on ... I'm sure you can work out which kernel.org version.

For the Liquorix kernels, the number that reflect what version of the vanilla kernel it's based on is set in the abi line in /debian/config/defines, which is 9.1 in the 4.15-4 Liquorix kernel. The ".1" means that it's the first version based on that particular 4.15.9 kernel patch. The "4.15-4" comes from the versioning in /debian/changelog.

Now updated to 4.15-5 (4.15-10.1) which incorporates the vanilla 4.15.10 patch as well as 4.15-11 rc1.
