The kernel report

Jonathan Corbet (corbet@lwn.net)

The Linux kernel is unique among free software projects. It is large, accepting contributions from a full 2000 developers over the last year. Development is fast-paced, with major releases happening every 2-3 months. This project is at the core of the Linux system, defining the capabilities and performance which will be available at all higher levels.

This talk - an ongoing OLS tradition - will provide a wide-angle look at the kernel development process and its current state. Attendees will learn what pressures are driving kernel development, what has happened over the last year, and where things are likely to go in the near future.
