Beaverton, Ore. - December 6, 2004 - The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL),
a global consortium dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux in the
enterprise, today announced that it will host a forum at the Enterprise Linux
Summit for attendees to meet kernel development experts and other OSDL
technical personnel. The "OSDL Meet the Experts" forum will be located on the
exhibition floor during the conference and will be staffed by OSDL Linux
kernel developers, test engineers and other technical experts. This forum
will help Enterprise Linux Summit attendees understand how OSDL works with
the open source software & Linux development communities to improve Linux and
accelerate its adoption.
The "Experts" forum will allow Summit attendees and OSDL engineers to share
best practices about kernel patch submission and other aspects of the Linux
kernel process. It also provides a means for Summit attendees to learn more
about OSDL's extensive Linux testing program. Finally, OSDL staffers will be
on hand to provide information about the newest developments within OSDL's
Carrier Grade Linux, Data Center Linux and Desktop Linux working groups.
"OSDL is a leader in Linux testing and a significant contributor to the
kernel community," said Dan Frye, VP IBM Linux Technology Center. "This forum
should be valuable to anyone interested in the Linux kernel and the work
being done to enhance and improve it."
