The Linux Foundation has announced
the annual update of its report on kernel development. There is little
there that will be new to LWN readers, but, in the humble opinion of your
editor (who is one of the authors), it is a good summary of the situation.
"This paper documents a bit less frenzied development than the last
one, which was expected given all the new features of 2.6.30 (ext4, ftrace,
btrfs, perf etc) as well as the peak of merged drivers from Linux stable
tree. Regardless, this report continues to paint a picture of a very strong
and vibrant development community.
