"9 lessons from 25 years of Linux kernel development" from Greg Kroah-Hartman. Short release cycles are important, process scalability requires a distributed, hierarchical development model, tools matter, the kernel's strongly consensus-oriented model is important, the kernel's strong 'no regressions' rule is also important, corporate participation in the process is crucial, but no single company dominates kernel development, there should be no internal boundaries within the project, the kernel shows that major developments can spring from small beginnings, above all, 25 years of kernel history show that sustained, cooperative effort can bring about common resources that no group would have been able to develop on its own.

Another in the never-ending series of "where was that kernel released at?"

Today's installment is brought to you from 3/4 the way up of the tallest building in Taiwan. One of the best views I've ever had for this task. Not the first time it has happened here, and hopefully not the last.

Oh, and go upgrade, new kernels are out there, something for everyone:
4.4.54
4.9.15
4.10.3

Oh look, a new phone nice! Oh wait, 3.4 based kernel?

And an out-of-date 3.4 kernel at that? Go read the comments, Willy shows that this is a totally insecure device, over 5000 bug and security fixes are missing from the kernel.

Not good at all, something needs to be done for this issue, educating people and companies seems to be my full-time job these days...

The coreOS people have much longer beards than the BSD people here at FOSDEM.

Wireguard talk at +FOSDEM​. Good stuff, 4k lines of kernel code, half the size of your serial port driver.

Releasing kernels during the standing-room-only opening talk at FOSDEM 2017.

Go get 4.4.47 and 4.9.8 now!

From an unnamed friend on Facebook, figured it was worth posting here as well... And if you wish to do your own, have at it: http://hepwori.github.io/execorder/

Yes, 4.9 is the next longterm kernel. I've been saying that for a while, but somehow if it wasn't on the kernel.org website, no one believed me :)
