Great talk! Thanks for the history. Couldn't agree with you more on the need to get better and easier access to Research papers/journals. Getting academia and industry to work more closely together is a noble cause (and important).
I know that the extensive use of Linux in RT academia is not a unique happenstance - much of networking research, among others, also uses Linux. So it would be good to have that joint forum/list for research and kernel people to have a wider focus, not just real-time. Were you thinking this would be only a real-time forum? Or something that other areas of research /
Linux could share?
