As has been reported on LWN
recently, Andrew Morton has been heard to worry that bugs are being added
to the kernel more quickly than they are being fixed. But it is hard to
know for sure. In an attempt to obtain a little more data on the problem,
Andrew has asked LWN to run a survey of its subscribers. The results will,
hopefully, shed some light on how a wider part of the community sees the
kernel quality issue; they will be discussed at the upcoming kernel summit.
This opportunity is an honor for LWN subscribers, who are seen as being
more than sufficiently knowledgeable to provide good answers while being
unlikely to attempt to skew the results. It is a chance for all of us to
help with the development process. If you are an LWN subscriber, please
take a few minutes, proceed to
the survey and help out.
