A day in the life of a Linux kernel hacker...

John W. Linville (linville@tuxdriver.com)

The Linux kernel is a huge project with contributors spanning the globe. It's usefulness and other advantages continue to draw new users on a daily basis. Some users will discover problems with the kernel, and others will eventually find a need to add their own features to Linux. Whether your are a user in need of support or a developer trying to enhance the kernel, it is good to know something about who is in the community and how they work together.

This topic will introduce the newcomer to some of the characters in the Linux community and some of the roles they play. It will highlight some of the tasks Linux hackers perform on a day to day basis, and give a general overview of how work gets done within the community.
