The 2002 Linux Kernel Developers' Summit was held June 24 and 25
in Ottawa, Ontario. At this event, a number of issues relevant to the
latter part of the 2.5 development series were worked out. LWN's Jonathan
Corbet was there, and has written up the experience.
- Day One covered the Hammer port, kernel
parameters, rationalizing the loadable module mechanism, virtual
memory, and the block I/O subsystem.
- Day Two was dedicated to what database
systems need from Linux, HP's kernel wishlist, the Loadable Security
Module, asynchronous I/O, SCSI, and the kernel release process. Among
other things, a firm date has been set for the 2.6 feature freeze.
Look inside the individual days' coverage for the details.
