The Linux Kernel Development Process

In this talk, Morton will describe how the Linux kernel actually comes to be, how features are chosen, and how the develop/test/release cycle is managed. He'll explain how commercial Linux distributions such as Red Hat and SuSE fit into this process. More generally, he'll consider what motivates kernel developers, and why system software is a particularly good fit for the open source model.
