New Linux Kernel Development Process Posted Saturday, July 30, 2005 @ 11:57 AM by mayhem
Releasing the 2.6.13-rc4 Linux Kernel, Linus Torvalds announced an improved development process to try and minimize the number of bugs in the kernel. The general idea is simple, changes will only be allowed for two weeks after the release of a stable kernel. All the rest of the time between releases will be spent on fixing bugs. This should improve upon last years development module, which allows for active development in the 2.6 stable kernel. (Source: Slashdot)
