The Linux Kernel Development model

A session at Open Source Bridge 2009

Thursday 18th June, 2009

10:00am to 10:45am (PST)

This talk will go into how the Linux kernel development model works, harnessing the energy of thousands of different developers, moving at a faster rate than any other software project ever has, yet at the same time, producing a stable and reliable kernel release every 3 months for many years.

The different kernel trees will be explained, how people get involved and are encouraged by others, and how regressions are handled and tested for.
