Two lazyweb requests

I have a python script that I run all the time as part of my process for emailing out "your patch has been accepted" messages when I accept a Linux kernel patch into one of the many different development trees I maintain. This script's goal is to merely determine the character encoding that the email needs to be sent in, either "UTF-8" or "ISO-8859-1" or "ANSI_X3.4-1968".

What’s up with ARM

Over the course of the last month or so, numerous people have asked me for my opinion on what’s going on with the ARM architecture in Linux. It seems time to broadcast those thoughts more widely. For those who don’t want to read the whole thing, the short version is this: Linux on ARM is a victim of its own success and, as a result, is going through some growing pains. That has created a lot of noise, but all that’s really needed is a bit of house cleaning.

Open Compliance Training Helps Set-Top-Box Manufacturer Leverage Linux

At The Linux Foundation, we are lucky to work directly with many of the most innovative companies in the world. We all know the big names like Google, IBM and Intel but as Linux use has expanded into new segments - especially in the embedded industry - we get to work with smaller, but no less innovative companies. The best part is helping them make the most of Linux by getting involved in the community. As an example, we recently completed software compliance  and community involvement training at set-to-box manufacturer Altech UEC.
