Linus Torvalds met with 40 of the top Linux developers at Maintainers' Summit, in consultation with Open Source Summit Europe in Scotland.
They talked about his return to Linux, the adoption of the new Linux Code of Conduct (CoC), and the way the Berkeley Packet Filter (BPF) is changing Linux.What will happen now?
First, Torvalds returns to the driver's seat.
"I start with the usual moy activity," Torvalds said. But kernel growth is not going to happen as usual.
"We talked about the fact that Greg [Kroah-Hartman] will have subscription rights to my kernel tree and it will be easier to share the load. If we want, we may add another conservator after further discussion. "
Thus, Kroah-Hartman, who manages the fixed kernel, will also have a say in Linux's leading Linux kernel that only Linus had previously developed.
So it seems that balances have been restored and Linux community problems will only continue to be coding issues.
That being said, the Linux community needed a more polite Torvalds with a fairer and more balanced way of dealing with its partners. We'll see how well Linus Torvalds can manage this time around.
