He, yeah. I'm not sure if this is what Andrew wants... Either way, it might be time for Linus to start thinking about this and maybe train a (few) possible successor(s). It can take years before one has the experience to do what he is doing, so he should start doing that sooner rather than later...

there have been several 'obvious' successors to Linus over the years. Some of them are not involved with kernel development to a noticable degree anymore, some are. it's very hard to tell how people will change in the future.

Sure, that's why I said he should train 'a few'. Anyway, there are always people coming and leaving, that's how FOSS works. And that's why you should think about succession... Not ignore that subject.
