Ehr? Are you saying that a single guy is responsible for maintaining all of Red Hat's kernels? Besides other things? I suppose he gets help from others, right?
Actually Dave is one of the initial products of the Welsh Gnome Cloning Project.
You may remember a while back that Linus said:-
Note that nobody reads every post in linux-kernel. In fact, nobody who expects to have time left over to actually do any real kernel work will read even half. Except Alan Cox, but he's actually not human, but about a thousand gnomes working in under-ground caves in Swansea. None of the individual gnomes read all the postings either, they just work together really well. (see Wikiquote)
Well Dave is a smaller collective of the Swansea Gnomes that broke away from the main Alan Cox collection. If you have seen Dave you will realise that this sure is the case.
