Current State of the Linux Kernel
Greg Kroah-Hartman, Kernel Hacker, SuSE Labs / Novell

Track: Linux
Date: Thursday, July 29
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Salon E


This talk will go into the current status of the 2.6 Linux kernel development process, detailing the prior history of the 2.5 development process, and attempt to explain the brash claim by the kernel developers that a 2.7 fork will not happen any time soon as they "are happy the way things currently are." It will also go into how the development process for the kernel maintainers has changed without anyone else noticing.
