InformationWeek reports from the kernel panel discussion
at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. "Andrew Morton, a key aide to Linux lead developer Linus Torvalds and often referred to as the 'Colonel of the kernel,' put the issue equally bluntly: 'Yes, we're getting older, and we're getting more tired. I don't see people jumping with enthusiasm to work on things the way that I used to.'
But he added that meant the developers in the kernel process had gained deep knowledge of the code they're working with and are willing to tackle greater complexity in making additions.
