Merging In 2.6.20

Filed under
Linux

Following the release of the of the 2.6.19 kernel, Andrew Morton offered a list of patches in his -mm tree, summarizing for each his plans as to whether or not they will be pushed to Linus for inclusion in the upcoming 2.6.20 kernel.

Andrew's summaries were generally terse, often as simple as "shall merge" or "shall hold in -mm". Many patches were noted as having been forwarded on to the appropriate subsystem maintainer for further review. As per the current kernel development model, all major changes to find their way into 2.6.20 should be merged by the time 2.6.20-rc1 is released in mid-December, two weeks after 2.6.19 was released.

Android Lollipop has made that process quite a bit more efficient. Read more
