[$] Bash the kernel maintainers

Post Syndicated from corbet original https://lwn.net/Articles/738222/rss

Laurent Pinchart ran a session at the 2017 Embedded Linux Conference
entitled “Bash the maintainers”; the idea was to get feedback from
developers on their experience working with the kernel . A few
days later, the Maintainers Summit held a free-flowing discussion on the
issues that were brought up in that session. Some changes may result from
this discussion, but it also showed how hard it can be to change how kernel
subsystem maintainers work.
