We are now two years into the new maintainer model for ARM platforms, and we have settled down into a workflow that maintainers have adjusted well to. Still, when new platforms arrive, or when maintainership changes hands, there's sometimes a bit of ramp-up in getting used to how we organize our git tree and how we prefer to see code submitted to fit that model.
This presentation will give an overview of how we have chosen to organize and maintain the arm-soc tree, and advice to developers and maintainers on best practices to help organize your code in a way that makes life easier for everybody involved.
Main audience for this presentation is developers working on upstream kernels for ARM platforms, including platform maintainers.
Olof Johansson first encounter with Linux was with SLS back in 1993. It was fairly brief, and he spent some dark years working on BSD and AIX after that. He finally found his way back to the light some ten years later -- first with PPC64 and later with ARM. | | Today he makes his living working on Chrome OS at Google. He has since 2011 been maintaining the arm-soc tree together with Arnd Bergmann. | | Olof lives in the SF Bay Area with his wife and two young sons.
