The Linux Kernel is the largest collaborative software development project in the world with a new patch being merged every few minutes. The contribution process to the Kernel is well documented in order to sustain such a fast pace, but not all the rules are written down and maintainers often have different opinions about many of them. As a result, rules can vary from one subsystem to another and these differences are not always clearly defined. In this presentation Javier Martinez Canillas will discuss lessons learned from contributing to different subsystems that could improve interactions between individual contributors and the community.
