This page is for information about the embedded Linux and open source community.
- 1 People
- 2 Communities for beginners
- 3 Linux User Groups
- 4 Development Model
- 5 Quality Assurance
This section lists inviduals who are "movers and shakers" in embedded Linux:
Important kernel figures
- Linus Torvalds - Linux kernel initiator and head maintainer
- Andrew Morton - maintains an important secondary (staging) tree
Kernel arch maintainers
- Russell King - ARM kernel maintainer
- Paul Mundt - SH kernel maintainer
- Ralph Baechle - MIPS kernel maintainer
- Greg Ungerer - uCLinux kernel maintainer
- Arnd Bergman - CELL kernel maintainer
- Andi Kleen - author of bloat-o-meter
- Matt Mackall - originator of Linux-tiny patch set (author of SLOB allocator)
- Ingo Molnar - author of RT-preempt patch set
- Thomas Gleixner - author of clock events
- David Woodhouse - MTD/jffs2 author?
The following page has a list of people we'd like to interview for an elinux.org feature:
Communities for beginners
- http://kernelnewbies.org/ - General site for people getting started developing on the Linux kernel
- http://jp.kernelnewbies.org/webresources - Japanese site for kernel newbies
Linux User Groups
One way to get involved with a bunch of like-minded Linux enthusiasts is to participate in a local Linux users group. The following site has a good database of Linux users groups:
- The Cathedral and the Bazaar
- FIXTHIS - add more links to papers and articles about the development model
Reasons for contributing to open source
- Open Source ROI Model - a page about return on investment from open source contributions
This section has links to aspects of the development model designed to provide quality assurance.
Certificate of Origin
Developers who contribute code to the Linux kernel agree to the Developer Certificate Of Origin by signing their code, with a "Signed Off By" line.
