Collaboration in Kernel Mailing Lists - Dawn Foster, The Scale Factory

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While there is quite a bit of data about the people and companies who commit Linux kernel code, there isn't much data about how people work together on the kernel mailing lists where they decide what patches will be accepted.

You can expect to learn more about the people, their employers, and other data that impacts how people participate on the mailing lists.
