List of maintainers and how to submit kernel changes
Please try to follow the guidelines below. This will make things
easier on the maintainers. Not all of these guidelines matter for every
trivial patch so apply some common sense.
1. Always _test_ your changes, however small, on at least 4 or
5 people, preferably many more.
2. Try to release a few ALPHA test versions to the net. Announce
them onto the kernel channel and await results. This is especially
important for device drivers, because often that's the only way
you will find things like the fact version 3 firmware needs
a magic fix you didn't know about, or some clown changed the
chips on a board and not its name. (Don't laugh! Look at the
SMC etherpower for that.)
3. Make sure your changes compile correctly in multiple
configurations. In particular check that changes work both as a
module and built into the kernel.
4. When you are happy with a change make it generally available for
testing and await feedback.
5. Make a patch available to the relevant maintainer in the list. Use
'diff -u' to make the patch easy to merge. Be prepared to get your
changes sent back with seemingly silly requests about formatting
and variable names. These aren't as silly as they seem. One
job the maintainers (and especially Linus) do is to keep things
looking the same. Sometimes this means that the clever hack in
your driver to get around a problem actually needs to become a
generalized kernel feature ready for next time. See
Documentation/CodingStyle for guidance here.
PLEASE try to include any credit lines you want added with the
patch. It avoids people being missed off by mistake and makes
it easier to know who wants adding and who doesn't.
PLEASE document known bugs. If it doesn't work for everything
or does something very odd once a month document it.
6. Make sure you have the right to send any changes you make. If you
do changes at work you may find your employer owns the patch
not you.
7. Happy hacking.
-----------------------------------
Maintainers List (try to look for most precise areas first)
Note: For the hard of thinking, this list is meant to remain in alphabetical
order. If you could add yourselves to it in alphabetical order that would be
so much easier [Ed]
P: Person
M: Mail patches to
L: Mailing list that is relevant to this area
W: Web-page with status/info
S: Status, one of the following:
Supported: Someone is actually paid to look after this.
Maintained: Someone actually looks after it.
Odd Fixes: It has a maintainer but they don't have time to do
much other than throw the odd patch in. See below..
Orphan: No current maintainer [but maybe you could take the
role as you write your new code].
Obsolete: Old code. Something tagged obsolete generally means
it has been replaced by a better system and you
should be using that.
