|SUBJECT ||Subject: [NYLXS - HANGOUT] Kernel Hacking Resources
The Kernel Mentors Project was created by Matt Mackall as "an informal
project to get experienced developers to mentor new developers and coach
them on the best ways to get their code ready for submission."
The mailing list page for it can be found at
The basic idea is matching new kernel developers up with experienced
developers so they can get acquainted with existing best practices.
What this project hopes to accomplish:
* smooth out the development process a bit
* get various open code that ought to be in mainline merged
* generally increase participation from various camps (vendors,
* perhaps we can even deal with some language barrier issues
* document the process along the way
This should be an Senior Year undergraduate requirement ;)
