The Linux Ecosystem, where do you fit in it? - Greg Kroah-Hartman


Greg Kroah-Hartman is a Linux kernel maintainer for the USB, driver core, sysfs, and debugfs portions of the kernel as well as being one half of the -stable kernel release team. He currently works for Novell as a technical fellow doing various kernel related things and has written a few books about Linux development in the past.


The Linux ecosystem consists of a wide variety of developers, projects, and companies. We're going to try to define how the different portions interact, how changes flow through it, and who the major contributors are within the system.
