Linux Kernel development, who is doing it, what are they doing, and who is sponsoring it (with pretty graphs and a few posters)

Greg Kroah-Hartman (greg@kroah.com)

This paper will analyze the changes that have been happening in the Linux kernel since the 2.6.0 release. It will detail the following things:

  • the rate of change over time
  • where the changes are occurring
  • who is doing the changes
  • what companies are doing the changes
  • what companies and people are doing what changes
It will also describe the flow of patches between developers by analyzing the "Signed-off-by:" patch, and create a very large diagram showing all of the different individuals contributing to the Linux kernel over the past few years, and how they are interconnected to each other. Lots of nice graphs and charts and even posters will be created for this paper and presentation.
