A year in my life.

I've now been with the Linux Foundation for just over a year. When I started, I posted a list of how you can watch to see what I've been doing. But, given that people like to see year-end-summary reports, the excellent graphic designers at the Linux Foundation have put together an image summarizing my past year, in numbers:

AF_BUS, D-Bus, and the Linux kernel

There's been a lot of information scattered around the internet about these topic recently, so here's my attempt to put them all in one place to (hopefully) settle things down and give my inbox a break.

Help Wanted

I'm looking for someone to help me out with the stable Linux kernel release process. Right now I'm drowning in trees and patches, and could use some one to help me sanity-check the releases I'm doing.

Specifically, I'm looking for someone to help with:

Stable kernel tree status, August, 2012

As I posted to the linux-kernel mailing list, the 3.4 kernel tree will be the next -longterm kernel that I will be maintaining for at least 2 years.

Currently I'm maintaining the following stable kernel trees for the following amount of time:

3.0 - for at least one more year 3.4 - for at least two years 3.5 - until 3.6.1 is out

Hope this helps clear up any rumors floating around. If anyone has any please let me know.

Ask a Kernel Maintainer

I've been writing an occasional "Ask a kernel maintainer" column on the lwn.net weekly kernel page. It's been a while since I last wrote one, so I figured it's time to start it up again.

So, consider this an open request for questions that you've always wondered, but never knew who to ask, or how to find the answer to, that you have had about the Linux kernel.

Role of a Linux Kernel Maintainer

At LinuxCon Japan a few weeks ago I gave a talk entitled, "Linux Kernel Maintainers, What they do and how you can help them."

The video of the talk is now online here if you want to see what I said, and the full slides, and text of what I said can be found in the presentation's repository.

openSUSE Tumbleweed status for the week of March 26, 2012

It's been about a year since I did a status report of what's going on in the openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo, let me know if you find this actually useful or not so that I can determine if I should keep it up.

The 2.6.32 Linux kernel

Last week I released the 2.6.32.58 kernel and said it would be the last one of this series that I was releasing. Given that this was one of the most successful kernel series out there, by number of users, I figured it was worth a brief history of how this came to be, and what I have learned from it.

What Greg Does

With my recent job change, I'm starting to run into a bunch of people asking "What exactly are you going to be doing now?"

I've tried responding by describing the kernel related stuff I've been doing for the past years, and it turns out that a lot of people didn't even realize I was doing that.
